EU Enlargement Commissioner, Johannes Hahn has declared that the crisis in FYROM can only be solved through political means and not through violence.

“I call on all political parties and citizens to restrain themselves from the acts of violence. The crisis can only be through political means. Politicians have a responsibility to return to the table of negotiations”, wrote commissioner Hahn on Twitter, commenting on last night’s protests in Skopje, where there was violence and wounded people, but also arrests of amid civil society activists.

Protests broke out when president of the country, George Ivanov announced a general amnesty for politicians and senior state officials who are involved in criminal acts and corruption. /balkaneu.com/
