Along with fellow MPs, we will block the draft-law on foreign affairs, where the ambassadors are allowed to have another citizenship, aside from the Macedonian. That is a wrong solution and we will submit 300 amendments, said VMRO-DPMNE MP Antonio Miloshoski.
“First, because the change is arbitrary and is an attempt to adapt the law to several personal decisions of government partners to fill ambassadorial positions,” the opposition lawmaker said.
Secondly, as former Minister of Foreign Affairs Miloshoski assessed, these amendments are contrary to the Law on Classified Information, and the law on state secrets does not allow issuing certificates to dual citizens, and being named an ambassador requires such certificate.
Diplomacy is a sensitive area where loyalty to your native country Macedonia can’t be questioned, Miloshoski said.
