meta_maliSKOPJE – The goal of the platform of the Albanian parties is not for unification of Macedonia but for Macedonia to be the next phase in the creation of a third Albanian state, said the president of the state during Thursday’s interview in the “One on One” TV show on the Croatian Radio Television (HRT), Meta reports.

Regarding the platform, Ivanov said that its intent is to equal the Albanian language with the Macedonian and to change the constitutional amendment that comes from the Ohrid frame agreement with which ethnic communities in Macedonia receive their right depending on their percentage of 20%.

-The essence of the platform is to change the constitutional order of the Republic of Macedonia. That means, to turn Macedonia from a multiethnic society and a unitarian state to become biethnic. In comparison we can say, Macedonia to become like Cyprus, only Macedonia is not an island, said Ivanov.
