USA calls for the violent events of 27 April in Parliament to be investigated

USA called on state authorities in FYROM to fully investigate the events taken place on 27 April in Parliament, where MPs were subject to physical attacks.

The US representative at OSCE, Kate Burns said that all the perpetrators and organizers of these violent episodes must be brought to justice.

“I condemn the violent attacks against MPs in the Parliament of Macedonia, occurred after the election of Talat Xhaferi as speaker. We will collaborate with the new speaker and Parliament in supporting democracy and helping Macedonia to move forward in the process of European integration. There is no room for violence in democratic processes. We have expressed our great solidarity for the wounded MPs and we demand from institutions to guarantee their safety and investigate the attacks”, Burns said.

Burns added that the solution to the political crisis can only come by respecting the law and the will of the people. The European Union has also called for investigations to take place. /balkaneu.com/
