VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski ishared a 1903 New York Times article about the killing of Goce Delchev. In the article, Delchev is declared as a “famous Macedonian chief” who “practically created the present Macedonian organization”.
“In 1903 the New York Times wrote about the death of Goce Delcev declaring a “Macedonian chief’s death”. And 117 years later we are stuck in stories about how Bulgarians want to be our fathers, cousins, brothers. With Zaev, we are losing our country. If the price to pay is self-denial, then our response should be to abandon Zaev’s treaty with our eastern neighbor and to stop the negotiations,” Mickoski said.
