Foreign Ministry summons Greek Ambassador to Macedonia

Macedonian Foreign Ministry has called in Greek Ambassador Alexandra Papadopoulou for talks on Monday due to anti-Macedonian chants at the military parade in Athens.

At the meeting with Deputy Minister Zoran Petrov, she will be presented with a protest note and formal apology will be asked, Foreign Ministry confirmed for Macedonian media.

Government spokesperson Martin Martinovski at today’s press conference said that manifestation of hate speech does not contribute in building good-neighbourly relations.

While the soldiers were marching they had numerous racist chants, one of them being: "They are Skopians, they are Albanians, we will make new clothes out of their skins”.
