Lots of Albanians, Roma people from FYROM emigrate to EU member states

Lots of citizens of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), mainly Albanians and Roma people, continue emigrating to EU member states, Greek Ethnos newspaper writes.

Since the lifting of the visa regime last October, thousands of FYROM citizens headed for Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland and Norway as many of them are searching for political asylum to stay permanently in the country. Despite the sharp reactions on behalf of the European Commission and several European governments, the emigration process continues.

The reason is that people are searching for better life and want to get away from the discrimination, the newspaper comments.
