MoFA calls Tirana to stop provocations and to work on good neighbourly relations



Macedonia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) summoned Monday the Ambassador of the Republic of Albania to Macedonia to make remarks over frequent offensive statements and comments by officials of the Republic of Albania addressed to the Republic of Macedonia and its citizens.

The statements by Albanian Prime Minister and Foreign Minister about binational country and constitutional changes in the Republic of Macedonia are open interference in the internal affairs. Using the term “Slav Macedonians” for Macedonians is insulting and discriminatory remark for Macedonians and all citizens of Macedonia, Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a press release.

It was also pointed out that such messages are a serious provocation of neighborliness we want to nurture and they cause long-term effects to relations in the region and employ extremist rhetoric.

What the region needs is uniting in regard to EU integration, peace and economic progress. Therefore, we appeal provocations to stop, sovereignty to be respected and to work on maintaining good neighbourly relations for the benefit of everyone in the region, Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a press release.
