There is no dilemma as to when “North Macedonia” is used and when the adjective “Macedonian” is used, the Prime Minister of North Macedonia said today, answering a question from VMRO-DPMNE MP Ane Lashkoska, during the parliamentary control in Parliament. , as noted by the MIA News Agency.
When the state is represented and when the football team represents the state, indeed then the name “North Macedonia” is used, while “macedonian”, all parts of the adjective, our identity, the macedonian language are used in all other forms of discussion, communication and exchange of views “.
Asked by Ane Lashkoska why he apologized for the mistake he made when he wrote “macedonian national football team”, Zoran Zaev pointed out that it is politically correct to correct a mistake when it contradicts the Prespa Agreement.
“I signed this Agreement, I negotiated this Agreement and it absolutely guarantees the macedonian national identity and the macedonian language. “There is absolutely no dilemma as to when” North Macedonia “is used and when the adjective” macedonian” is used,” Zaev said and continued that “previously for everyone in the world we were fYROM, while today for the whole world we are the Republic of North Macedonia and we are recognized as macedonians who speak the macedonian language”.
It is clear based on the Prespa Agreement, which is a law ratified by the plenary of our Parliament, what are the adjectives “macedonian” and what is the use of the name “North Macedonia” in the representation of the state and of state institutions and there is a clear distinction in this regard. “The problem is that you are always looking for a way to deceive the public with an dishonest approach, regarding the future of the macedonians, but also of all those who live in our country”, said Zaev./ibna
