Zaev to Gruevski: Come back home and serve your time

 It was a meeting of leaders of right-wing political parties that can prove to be important in strengthening Macedonian-Hungarian ties, Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said when asked to comment on Tuesday’s meeting of VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski with Hungarian PM Viktor Orban in Budapest.

It’s a very logical thing, he said, two right-wing leaders to meet since their parties are also EPP members. “I really believe this meeting can contribute to strengthening the friendship between North Macedonia and Hungary,” Zaev said speaking to reporters in Bitola on Wednesday.

Asked to comment on Nikola Gruevski’s Facebook post, saying he got the urge to help Zaev after everything that had been happening recently in the country, PM Zaev said that the best way to help was for Gruevski to come back and go to jail.

“The country, indeed, needs help. The best way to help is to serve your time. We are all sending a message of accountability with everything we do. So, I can really send an ambiguous message – come back home,” he stated.
