Zaev: Adjective “Macedonian” Was Never Problem and Remains in Minutes

Prime Minister Zoran Zaev fully supported the statement of the head of the Macedonian team of historians in the Joint Commission, Dragi Gjeorgiev – both assured that the adjective “Macedonian” is not a problem and it remains in the minutes. Many dilemmas arose in the public after some of the media reported that the adjective “Macedonian” is being replaced by the constitutional name, and the leader of VMRO-DPMNE Hristijan Mickoski, asked how is it possible for the adjective to disappear from the minutes of the commissions if the government constantly claims that the identity is “rock solid” and is not negotiated with neighbouring Bulgaria. VMRO-DPMNE on Sunday in a statement accused SDSM and Zaev that they are defending the Bulgarian national interests.
