Double standards of the liberal order have denied us our identity right, but also the right for prosperity, said President Gjorge Ivanov in his address at the 5. Global Baku Forum on Thursday. Ivanov stressed that Macedonia's independence started by celebrating political liberalism and order, while the idea for freedom had the power to transform the society, the President's Office said in a press release. “Macedonia became the region's leader of European and EuroAtlantic integration, but was still faced with a big paradox,” he added. According to him, Macedonia is an example of a collapse of the liberal order following World War II. “Macedonia is the only country in the UN that has no right of its identity. It is denied the right to self-identification, the fundamental right of every individual and country in the international order. Macedonia is also stripped of its right for prosperity through the hindering of its NATO and EU integration. This shows the hypocrisy of this international order by its double standards,” stressed Ivanov.
