Zaev after leaders’ meeting: We will forever be Macedonians and speak the Macedonian language

The homeland will succeed. Macedonia will join EU and NATO. We will forever be Macedonians and we will forever speak the Macedonian language, says Zoran Zaev in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

The message comes after yesterday’s leaders’ meeting that failed to produce an agreement over the referendum.

However, the leaders of SDSM, DUI, VMRO-DPMNE and Besa reached an agreement on the election of the State Election Commission, the law on financing political parties, and a technical government in line with the Przino model for future parliamentary elections.

Speaking to reporters after the talks, Zaev said that opposition leader Hristijan Mickoski had refused to call on VMRO-DPMNE supporters to vote in the referendum, failing to recognize the moment.

“He is lying when he says that he wants Macedonia to join the EU and NATO,” Zaev stressed.
