Albanian TV “Top Channel” has published a news article titled “Foreign Minister of Macedonia, a CIA agent?” which implies that Nikola Dimitrov used to work for the US intelligence agency.
More specifically, part of the text reads: “According to these documents, which are yet to be authenticated, Dimitrov was a CIA covert operative, who spied on ex-Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and ex-Prime Minister Branko Crvenkovski in 2008.”
The text says that the domestic media in Macedonia also came to the same conclusion, however the article doesn’t refer to any link or quotation or information about which media it is, nor such thing has been posted in the cable leaks by WikiLeaks.
There’s no statement by a Macedonian legal expert, nor any excerpts from the contents of the cable leak from WikiLeaks, as a source, where once could have drawn the conclusion as to whether Dimitrov was an agent of the US intellgence service, the CIA, says a fact-checking analysis posted on “KriTink“.
Even Dimitrov himself agreed for the information to be published. He does not deny what has been said, but says the information is old and dates back to 2010. His reaction was not disclosed by “Top Channel”.
Even thigh the article points out that the published materials are yet to have their autencity confirmed, however, it remains to the assertion that Dimitrov was a CIA agent.
This scandal with the publication of about 250,000 cable leaks from the State Department’s internal communications system in 2010 is well known. However, this system, which is accessed by many employees from the US Department of State, doesn’t contain such information regarding foreign “agents” who work for US interests”.
