We look upon the “Skopje 2014” project as a virus that first has to be quarantined, to be treated in isolation, and then we shall decide what we can do with this project in near future, said today the Minister of Culture Robert Alagjozovski at the press conference regarding his first 100 days in office.
He informed that a five-member working group from the Ministry of Culture will analyze the project and shall approach it in various phases and priorities. For some monuments and objects that are most controversial and for which the general public has reacted against, there are already some proposals how to be solved, but those shall be analyzed and the government will decide upon them.
-It’s the monument of Andon Janev Kjoseto, including various other projects that are in different phases of building and they are still creating financial implications on the state budget. Because of the complexity of any kind of interventions on part of the objects, we agreed that the working group should prepare many potential scenarios for any of them, and the government to make a decision what to do with these projects – said Alagjozovski.
