US embassy to Skopje has expressed its concern in relation to the political tension in FYR Macedonia, underlining that it’s closely following the current developments.

Through a press release issued today, the US embassy said that it supports the integration of the country, but it calls on institutions of the country to exploit all capacities at the service of the citizens, by showing transparency and fairness.

“The United States embassy continues to follow the political developments, which put a question mark on the issue of the independence of the media and judicial system and respect of other democratic values. Supporting the integration of the country in the Euro Atlantic community, we underline that this is an opportunity for institutions to show that they have the necessary capacity to serve the citizens in an efficient and unbiased manner”, reads the press release of the US embassy in relation to the wiretapping affair, but also in relation to the charges pressed against opposition leader Zoran Zaev for treason and cooperation with foreign secret services. The US reaction through its embassy in Skopje follows the reaction of the European Union for the solution of the political crisis. /ibna/
