Government disassociates itself from billboards

Macedonian government disassociated itself from the billboards placed in Skopje, at which the cross on the Greek flag is replaced with swastika cross.

"The government of the Republic of Macedonia wants to make it clear that it has nothing to do with this manifestation or with these billboards," says the written statement of the government's spokesman Ivica Bocevski.

"Nonetheless, if somebody finds the appearance of the poster offensive, we would like to disassociate ourselves from any visual symbols or rhetorical messages that carry such connotations," Bocevski said in the statement.

Macedonian Foreign Minister Antonio Milososki conveyed today to the Greek Ambassador the government's position relating this issue, reiterating Macedonia's intention and practice of building good-neighborly relations.
