The competent institutions of Northern Macedonia have already taken all necessary steps to identify the perpetrators.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemns the vandal and unpleasant incident on the day of the 150th anniversary of the birth of our most prominent revolutionary Gotse Delchev, committed by fans of football teams who uncivilizedly removed the ribbons from the wreaths placed by Bulgarian officials during the homage to the grave of the revolutionary.

This was announced last night by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of RN Macedonia.

They have officially informed the Republic of Bulgaria that the competent institutions of Northern Macedonia have already taken all necessary steps to identify the perpetrators of the vandalism.

It attempts to cast a shadow over the commemoration and celebration of the death of Gotse Delchev, his grave, as well as the image of our country and the delegations from Bulgaria who participated in this solemn celebration of this important for all of us great historical person, is stated in the press release of the Macedonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Earlier, the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Skopje sent a note expressing deep regret for the act of vandalism, after the joint celebration of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Gotse Delchev.

At the same time, this morning the office of the Ivan Mihailov Cultural Information Center in the town of Bitola was attacked. The incident was reported by the club and published photos from the broken window of the office.

Earlier, the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Northern Macedonia, Bujar Osmani, believed that the time had not come for a joint official celebration of Gotse Delchev. According to him, unlike the agreement for the joint celebration of five other historical figures, including the holy brothers Cyril and Methodius and Kliment Ohridski, this is not the case with Gotse Delchev.

 “Gotse Delchev is still in talks with the Historical Commission, which means that he is not subject to this official joint celebration, because we still have different interpretations about the role of this important person for us,” Osmani told MIA.

According to him, the joint celebration of Gotse could take place after the historical commission between the two countries issued a joint opinion on his role and proposed the celebration of the governments. He added that “differences should not always be seen as negative for relations between the two countries, because history is such that multiperspectivity is allowed and is sometimes preferred in interpretations of different historical figures and events.”

He also expressed hope that, despite differing interpretations, the Historical Commission would be encouraged to consider the general significance of the facts and events, which would create a bridge for co-operation between the two countries.

Osmani said the next meeting of the bilateral History Commission would be on February 28th.
