Szijjarto: Gruevski and VMRO-DPMNE are the only guarantee for the European integration path (VIDEO)

First I want to thank for the invitation of my two friends, both Nikola- Gruevski and Popovski, two outstanding politicians who from my experience I can say that they are doing what they can for their country and therefore you can rightfully be proud of them, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said at the rally of the coalition “For Better Macedonia” led by VMRO-DPMNE in Stip.

I am honored that I can be here and address you at this rally of VMRO-DPMNE. We, Hungarians, consider Macedonia as a wonderful country, and the Macedonian people as wonderful people. Macedonia and the Macedonians really deserve respect, but unfortunately in recent years a number of characters from the international political life showed no respect for the people of Macedonia. There were people who openly and people who secretly were trying to interfere in your affairs. I want to emphasize that we, Hungarians, believe that only you, Macedonians, may decide for the the future of Macedonia, said Szijjarto.

In recent years, he added, many have tried to intervene in the affairs of Hungary. -There are those who openly and others who secretly for so-called non-governmental organizations were trying to determine our homeland without taking into consideration the will of the Hungarian people, but we, Hungarians, as a nation are real fighters for freedom and we did not yield to pressures. I suggest that you also do not yield to the attempts of external interference. Stand behind what’s yours and be proud of the achievements you made so far.


Macedonians gave their trust to Nikola Gruevski and VMRO-DPMNE in four consecutive occasions. At democratic elections nobody has the right to question the will of the citizens. We believe that Gruevski and his previous governments did an incredibly large amount of work in the interest of the European and Euro-Atlantic integration. If international political decisions were really based on merit and were made on the basis of common sense Macedonia would have been admitted to NATO and the accession negotiations with the EU would have already started years ago. But I believe that the work done and the efforts will bear fruit.

Do not, he added, pull off the road to European integration, and the only guarantee for that are Nikola Gruevski and VMRO-DPMNE.

Show the strength of Macedonia bt choosing Macedonia’s European path for the 5th time. Macedonia last year proved that Europe can count on it despite the pressure of politics and Western liberal media, you have invested superhuman efforts in the interest of defending Europe from the dangerous wave of migrants. For this you have my gratitude. I assure you that Macedonia can count on the support of Hungary in the future as well. I sincerely hope that on the morning of December 12 I will be able to continue to work with my friends with the same name Nikola.
