VMRO-DPMNE: Kovachevski to answer the key question - which of our two proposals does he accept?
"The key question that Kovachevski has to answer and without which there is no continuation of the talks is which of the two proposals of VMRO-DPMNE is acceptable to SDSM", say the opposition party in tonight's announcement to the public, which we are transmitting in its entirety:
"After Kovacevski said that there was no agreement at the leadership meeting, he now held a party meeting to discuss the proposals of VMRO-DPMNE. The fact that Macedonia has a pessimistic prime minister and the fact that the main communication goes through public fights speaks of the atmosphere in which important decisions are made.
To be clear: Constitutional amendments such as those offered by SDSM under Bulgarian dictation are not acceptable to VMRO-DPMNE. EU membership and protection of national identity are not acceptable for SDSM. What was offered by President Mickoski is a change of circumstances, protection of national interests and European integration.
And in that direction, two proposals were offered. The first transitional government without DUI, changes that will come into force with the end of the negotiations and the country's membership in the EU, the second elections, guarantees for the national identity and language, an economic package and protection of Macedonians in Bulgaria through the implementation of the judgments of the human rights court in Strasbourg and changes by a government without DUI supported by the opposition.
The key question that Kovacevski has to answer and without which there is no continuation of the talks is which of the two proposals of VMRO-DPMNE is acceptable to SDSM? A clear and unequivocal answer is needed before any other step," said VMRO-DPMNE.
