Skopje. Fights at schools and quarrels in the ruling coalition should be stopped immediately by having the political parties assume responsibility. Otherwise, more serious incidents may occur, experts in Macedonia say, the Spic newspaper writes on Thursday in an article titled “Does it smell like 2001?”
According to local analysts, the situation in Macedonia is fragile but not too dramatic.
“There is no crisis, since this word has always been connected to more dramatic events. But there is definitely worsening of the inter-ethnic relations”, said Vlado Popovski, adviser of the Macedonian president.
According to Popovski, the incidents are narrowed within some oral and political insinuations and they will not undermine the inter-ethnic relations too seriously.
