The fundamental question today is how Macedonia can help and assist with European efforts and measures to assist with the refugee crisis, and not to set up a barbed wire fence on the Macedonian-Greek border, says the President of the Liberal Party, Ivon Velickovski after yesterday’s statement by the Foreign Minister Nikola Popovski.

“While families and refugees were being re-united in Germany yesterday, the image of Macedonia’s use of force against refugees in the mud on the border were broadcasted across the world. Is this the ‘humane’ face of Macedonia? The Liberal Party are one of the first to welcome additional forces on our Southern border, but building a fence on the border is nonsense. Maybe Minister Poposki should think about building a barbed wire fence around the headquarters of VMRO-DPMNE< And not the Macedonian-Greeks border” said Mr Velickovski after last nights meeting between the Executive Committee of the LP (Liberal Party

Velickovski asked when the minister and the government began to consider this option, whose authority and whose initiative and whether their coalition partners from the Przhino Agreement have agreed to any such measure.
