The Government of Macedonia has said that the event at the Macedonian National Theater (MNT), where Albanian football fans went wild, is not organized by any state institution and must not in no way be associated with the government event marking the Albanian Alphabet Day.

The government assessed the inappropriate behavior as an abuse of hospitality in the Macedonian National Theater, and strongly condemns it.

It is obvious that the organizer of this event, as well as the initiator for it to be held at MNT, did not prepare and organize the event in accordance with the standards and expectations for events organized in national cultural institutions of the highest importance. The government expects the organizer and initiator of the event to make up for the damage done at the Macedonian National Theater and apologize to citizens for inappropriate behavior, the government said in a statement.
