The French proposal, which the Government is ready to accept, is extremely unfavorable for Macedonia because it contains the Bulgarian demands, says VMRO-DPMNE, adding that it is an ultimatum and a dictate after which Macedonia either has to negotiate forever or complete assimilation occurs.
The proposal envisiones Protocols, or as the Government likes to say Annual Reports, through which the implementation of Article 12 of the Agreement with Bulgaria from 2017, which foresees changes to textbooks, in relation to events from Macedonian history, changes to plaques on monuments, museums and public places that disturb Bulgaria, sanctioning any criticism or different opinion under the guise of hate speech and similar other humiliations, says the party.
VMRO-DPMNE warsn that this Protocol, as well as the entire proposal, is a defeat for Macedonian diplomacy, as it foresees assimilation and national disfigurement of Macedonia.
That is why the anger in the public and among the people is huge. That’s why the experts and intellectuals, and even some of the officials of the SDSM, say a loud NO to this ultimatum. VMRO-DPMNE supports the citizens who respectfully and loudly oppose this capitulation of the Kovacevski government. SDSM and Kovacevski are the ones who chose to be against their own people, just to preserve seats at the expense of the Macedonian identity. The message of the people is “Ultimate, NO THANKS”, says VMRO-DPMNE.
