NEWS OF THE DAY Biden adopts executive order: Non-compliance to agreements such as the Prespa agreement bring destabilization
The Prespa Agreement with Greece and the Ohrid Framework Agreement have found themselves on the US list of key agreements from the region, which if not complied to and implemented can lead to destabilization. This became clear after US President Joe Biden signed a new decree that suspends entry into the US for all persons from the Western Balkans who will not respect these agreements, and at the same time will block their property on the territory of the country.
As responsible are considered those who have violated the agreements for regional security and peace, such as the Prespa Agreement, Ohrid Framework Agreement, Resolution 1244 of the Dayton Accord.
VMRO-DPMNE and Levica remain against the Prespa Agreement despite the executive order of US President Joe Biden, which threatens suspending entry and blocking of property of all those against the Agreement with Greece and other important agreements for stabilization of the Balkans concluded in the past two and a half decades. The two parties expressly turned their backs on the country’s strategic partner, through the statements of the official of the biggest opposition party, Antonio Miloshoski and the head of Levica, Dimitar Apasiev.
