“The claim of Mr. Kostadin Kostadinov, MP of SDSM, that President Ivanov has blocked the appointments of the ambassadors of the Republic of Macedonia is a big lie and manipulation in order to defocus the public and an attempt to pressure the Macedonian President because of his position on the Law on Ratification of the Agreement with Greece.
If the political party SDSM has remarks about the procedure(s) for appointing ambassadors, we refer to the answers of the Cabinet of the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
We inform the public that for all proposed candidates for ambassadors, for which an agreement with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been obtained previously, the procedures for their appointment are ongoing. In accordance with the legal procedures, for some of the accepted and agreed proposals, the procedures for their appointment have been completed and the diplomats have already been directed to the execution of their duty.
On the statement of Mr. Kostadinov who stated that “President Ivanov acts only when he pardons criminals”, we remind that on that list of pardons there is also a certain Mr. Zoran Zaev, who is pardoned not once, but twice for major crimes, and previously pardoned by former President Crvenkovski. Therefore, we thank Kostadinov and the SDSM for their sincerity and the fact they treat their leader as a criminal.
It is unclear to us how the political party SDSM in today’s three TV appearances all focused on attacking President Ivanov failed to mention the name of our country, Macedonia.
On the other hand, it is clear and expected that the political party SDSM through such manipulations is trying to put pressure on President Ivanov, because of his policies and firm positions in defending the dignity of the Macedonian people and the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia, and regarding the non-signing of the Decree for the proclamation of the Law on Ratification of the Agreement with Greece,” reads the reaction of the President Ivanov’s Cabinet.
To quote Mirka Veliovska, the SDSM is a virus, a disease which must be eradicated.
