Kovacs: Gruevski’s asylum request was approved in accordance with all international standards


Hungarian Government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs held a press conference in Brussels where he said that the political asylum to former Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski was given in accordance with international standards.

– I don’t see questions like this addressed to other asylum seekers across Europe, Kovacs told the journalist asking about Gruevski.

Asked whether the approved of this asylum request means that Hungary doubts that Macedonia has an independent judiciary, Kovacs said that this is directly said in a number of European Commission reports on Macedonia as well as in reports by other international bodies.
