VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski in Monday’s interview with Deutsche Welle expressed concern that Zoran Zaev, instead of changing the circumstances for Macedonia in a line of lesser resistance, changes a member of the historical commission negotiating with the Bulgarian side. By doing that, the Prime Minister puts direct pressure on the commission, Mickoski pointed out.
“What is worrying is that Zaev, along the line of lesser resistance and his bent spine, instead of changing the circumstances for Macedonia in a positive way, we learn that he has changed a member of the historical commission negotiating with the Bulgarian side. Hence, it is unclear whether this is due to the fact that the historical commission refuses to accept Zaev’s distorted, and above all, inaccurate claims related to the historical facts that are an integral part of our identity. Does Zaev, by changing a member of the commission, exert direct pressure on them on how to decide in the future? We as the opposition do not have detailed information about the talks with Bulgaria, and I will mention that Zaev refused a leadership meeting on this topic. Hence, we get the details from unofficial channels and the media,” Mickoski told Deutsche Welle.
