Within the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, I had numerous meetings where I discussed the positions of Macedonia. But I also warn of the attempts made by Bulgaria to deny the Macedonian people, the Macedonian language and the Macedonian identity by abusing its position as an EU member state and using the right of veto, said Vice President of VMRO -DPMNE Aleksandar Nikoloski in a video address.
“I must admit that what worries me in these talks is that many interlocutors ask how it is possible for the Macedonian government to accept a proposal that is extremely harmful to Macedonia. What is the best proof that the Government of SDSM and DUI, the Government of Kovachevski gave consent to the last proposal which directly denies the separation of the Macedonian people, the Macedonian language and erases history and practically means Bulgarianization of Macedonia.
It means that Macedonia will not start negotiations with the EU and will not become an EU member until it is fully Bulgarianized. If that does not happen, Macedonia will never become an EU member.
The presentation of such a proposal by a very serious country like France cannot pass without the knowledge and consent of both the Government of Bulgaria and the Government of Macedonia. And that is why the silence of the Government of SDSM and DUI regarding the latest proposal is extremely worrying, which only confirms what I heard these days in Strasbourg, and that is that the Government unfortunately approved this proposal,” added Nikoloski.
