“Interference won’t help Albania which citizens expect from you to deal with the weaknesses in the governing and the economics nor it will help Macedonia, which citizens want a sovereign and independent country within its present borders. These citizens are paying the price of your apparent ambitions to redefine Macedonia instead of reforming Albania within its present borders. It won’t help the political parties in Macedonia towards which you act as a mentor or inappropriately underestimating. I am convinced that even without your interference we will find solutions for our challenges. Finally, it is very incorrect to fire up a nationalistic fire” said Dimitriev.

The acting Prime Minister, which was assigned to this duty with the Przino agreement, said that the Albanian language is widely spread in Macedonia and that the state has invested enormous sums in promoting the language and the cultures of various communities.

Dimitriev also said that the Macedonian citizens regardless of their ethnic and religious origins have gotten over many crises in its history and that they will get over this one as well.
