Defence Minister Comments on Latest Developments Related to Iran

At this time, there’s no reason for concern over the presence of NGOs in Macedonia connected to Iran because Macedonia is not a point of interest for them, according to Defence Minister Radmila Shekerinska. As she said on Thursday, Skopje’s diplomatic relations with Teheran are very modest, but not as complicated as Iran’s open issue with Albania. The previous day, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei had declared Albania an enemy. However, Shekerinska considers that the danger of radicalised Islamist groups returning from fronts there must never be eliminated. The Minister added that the world lived with the danger of terrorism. In the Utrinski brifing (Morning briefing) show, she said that the Government was working on programmes of re-socialisation and management of all those returnees.
