DUI calls Macedonia to recognize Kosovo

The MPs from the opposition Democratic Union for Integration (DUI) "are calling and inviting the Macedonian state leadership to recognize Kosovo's independence," says DUI's press release, issued Sunday afternoon, immediately after declaration of Kosovo's independence.

DUI addressed the call for recognition of Kosovo as an independent and sovereign state to the President Branko Crvenkovski, Parliament Speaker Ljubisa Georgievski and Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski.

"We strongly believe that in this historic moment, we will be capable of making courageous and just decisions, because Macedonia now has a neighboring country with identical orientation, a good neighbor, friend and a strategic partner in our shared Euro-Atlantic commitments," says the request sent by DUI's deputies.

A large number of DUI's members of and supporters answered the call of the party to celebrate today in Skopje the proclamation of independence of Kosovo by singing songs and firing gunshots in the air.
