Macedonian PM on Making Albanian an Official Second Language

The Macedonian Primer Minister Zoran Zaev commented on the passing of the new law in the country that makes Albanian a second official language. According to the PM, this will help the country move to create a “society for everyone.”

Zaev said: “This is a European value that received the support of the majority of the citizens on the parliamentary and local elections. Macedonia is a place for all citizens, this is a concept and a guide for our future. We decided to build a Macedonia as a country for all the citizens that live here: Albanians, Macedonians, Turks, Serbs, Bosnians, Roma, and others.”

The Prime Minister claims that the change is completely constitutional and that it guarantees the use of the Macedonian language. Zaev also claims that the conflicts that are against European values must be ended. One example of that would be the removal of monuments from the Skopje 2014 Project, including the statue of Statue of Andon Kyoseto.
