VMRO-DPMNE has issued a press release where it refutes the claims of Serbian president Aleksandar Vučić that a certain Macedonian institution has given its approval to the Serbian diplomat Goran Živaljević to enter the Parliament of Republic of Macedonia during the incident.

“VMRO-DPMNE, which now is an opposition party, within its powers had been checking the facts and had determined that neither MFA, nor the government or the Parliament, the MoI or the Inteligence Agency haven’t received such request nor have granted such approval or permission” said the opposition party.

In an interview for the state broadcasting service RTS, Vučić said that Živaljević has asked the highest representative of the executive power in Macedonia.

-Živaljević didn’t enter the building on his own. He didn’t ask me nor anyone in our country even though he answers to us. He has directly asked the highest representative of Macedonia’s executive power: “I want to be there. Do I have your approval?” They were well acuainted with his presense – said Vučić.

VMRO-DPMNE has called upon the government to check whether someone has given an approval and if there was to publish the document with which a certain institution has issued such approval. The party claims that if no document is shown in the next two days it shall be concluded that no such document as issued.
