Activities Marking 60 th Anniversary of Skopje Earthquake Continue

On the occasion of the 60 th anniversary of the Skopje earthquake, Parliament held a solemn session.

PM Dimitar Kovacevski praised the “courage of those that from the chaos and ruins on 26 July, helped a new Skopje to be born”. According to him, solidarity is the capital’s code.

The same day, VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski said the values that made the capital special and unique shouldn’t be forgotten. “Solidarity, the soul of the city, the ability to rise again even during the strongest hits and quakes,” he wrote. The Culture Ministry, through its Skopje at 5:17 am project, has joined the activities marking the anniversary.

The two-day programme started on Tuesday.
