VMRO-DPMNE has issued a press release as a reaction to the interview with Zoran Zaev for “Deutsche Welle” in which it says that the political party neither has asked for an amnesty nor it ever will. In the interview Zaev said that what Gruevski does is “for the purpose of trading for amnesty,” but there won’t be amnesty.

“Zoran Zaev cannot understand that someone sincerely loves Macedonia and that someone sincerely and honestly is fighting in the defense of the state and national interests. For him, everything is a matter of trade and negotiations. That is why Zaev lies and condemns. VMRO – DPMNE has neither asked for an amnesty nor there is a reason that it will. VMRO-DPMNE has always sided with the people and the state. That is the difference between VMRO-DPMNE and the criminal Zaev,” said the party.
