denko maleski Denko Maleski Criticizes Pseudomacedonian Ideology

Former minister of external affairs, prof. Denko Maleski, gave a statement in Sunday to Radio Free Europe. According to him, [FYROM] made the name issue with Greece “especially complicated by adding dimension of identity quarrel”. He further goes to say that this happened after “walking to [classical] antiquity”.

The most relevant part of the interview is when Maleski states:

when liberal minds would live within our side of the border, they certainly wouldn’t feel ashamed from their own Slavic language, and that their basic identity, just like the language, is Slavic, instead of establishing reference to variety of racist theories about antiquity and about some super-humans from which we originate“.

Vladislav Perunović, correspondent from Skopje, FYROM
