The Embassies of the United States and Germany condemned Mickovski’s inciting statement
The German Embassy and the US Embassy in the country reacted to the statement of the President of VMRO-DPMNE, Hristijan Mickoski, that the trial for the April 27 events will practically be a Nuremberg process, a series of trials carried out from 1945 to 1949 that brought to trial the political, military, judicial and economic leadership of Nazi Germany.
“Comparing the procedures of the judicial services of North Macedonia with the Nuremberg processes is inappropriate. This minimizes the acts of the Nazi criminals. The responsible people in North Macedonia need to contribute to overcoming the division of society and to lead a constructive dialogue about the future of the country in the direction of the Euro-Atlantic integrations. Moreover, the very statements about the Nuremberg processes are completely unacceptable”, is said in the announcement of the German Embassy.
“The inciting rhetoric by the political leaders causes fear and divisions, especially when it is incorrectly used for events in the past, such as the Nuremberg trials, for political goals. Such a language is dangerous and does not contribute to a productive dialogue on the directions in which the country is moving. It is very important for the leaders to engage in a civil dialogue that can promote stability and prosperity of North Macedonia”, is said in the reaction of the US Embassy.
