Teodora Genchovska and the Ambassador of our country to Northern Macedonia Angel Angelov.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Northern Macedonia strongly condemns the act of deliberate arson at the entrance of the Ivan Mihailov Association in Bitola.
“This vandal attack is another proof that there are many participants who are against the progress in the relations between Northern Macedonia and Bulgaria and our common European future.
This crime was not committed by chance on the day when the two sides will establish a dialogue
to overcome open issues on the path to European integration of Northern Macedonia. The competent authorities of the state are making efforts to find the perpetrator of this act of vandalism, “the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Northern Macedonia said in a statement.
The official opening of the club “Ivan Mihailov” in Bitola was on April 16 this year
