The President Stevo Pendarovski made an appeal to all the organizers of the protests, which are taking place these days in North Macedonia, to take responsibility and continue to exercise their democratic right to protest with dignity and without violence. At the same time, as stated in the announcement from his Cabinet, he strongly condemns the carrying and use of firearms by civilians and citizens of the country, who are not members of the security authorities.

- Using violence and inciting violence for political purposes is unacceptable. The event that happened yesterday in Skopje must not be repeated because there is nothing more important than the peace and security of all citizens, Pendarovski points out.

Yesterday, the police, as President Pendarovski says, had a timely reaction that prevented major clashes. - I expect all the people who were involved in the incident yesterday to be detained and appropriately sanctioned in the shortest possible time, emphasizes Pendarovski.
