Asked on Kanal 5 about the name dispute and the country’s new name VMRO-DPMNE Secretary-General Igor Janusev said that no one can forbid him or deny him how he feels about the Prespa Agreement and said that he would never accept Macedonia’s new name.
No one can forbid me or deny me how I feel about that deal. Where we have not only changed constitutional name, where we have literally violation of our identity and language. I’m Igor Janusev, I am Macedonian from the Republic of Macedonia who speaks Macedonian language, can you forbid me to feel negatively and consider this agreement as capitulation? Why, that’s my right. I’m Igor Janusev, I am Macedonian from the Republic of Macedonia who speaks Macedonian language, Janusev said on Kanal 5 on Friday.
Asked if VMRO-DPMNE comes to power whether he will use the new name or the name the Republic of Macedonia, Janusev said he never had nor will ever, never under no circumstances, nor in intimate conversation, add the adjective to the name.
