Skopje, 3 March 2018 (MIA) - The leaders of VMRO-DPMNE and DUI Hristijan Mickoski and Ali Ahmeti respectively met Saturday and discussed current political developments.
After the meeting they told reporters that the meeting was constructive and that they agreed to continue the communication.
Mickoski said that VMRO-DPMNE is oriented towards the EU and NATO integration and will contribute to more quality reforms. In regard to the Law on Use of Languages, Mickoski said that they did not negotiate, but they only discussed the positions. He reiterated the party’s position that conditions have not been created yet for their return in the parliament.
Due to mathematical and political reasons we cannot participate in the work of the parliament. Mathematical reason is that 12% of our MPs are held in custody so we cannot participate in the work of the parliament with our full capacity. Political reason refers to serious violation of democratic environment in Macedonia, Mickoski said.
Asked about the Law on the Use of Languages, Ahmeti told reporters that the meeting was not intended for negotiations but for congratulations. He said that country's stability and progress in implementing the reforms is in the interest of both parties.
We exchanged opinions in a very constructive manner and also about the necessary reforms that we must complete in the country. We also discussed the political processes in the country. The interest of both parties is our country to be as stable as possible, Ahmeti said.
This is first official meeting of leaders of two political parties after Mickoski becomes VMRO-DPMNE leader. sk/16:56
