HR/VP Josep Borrell press remarks ahead of his meeting with OSCE Chairman-in-Office and MFA of North Macedonia Bujar Osmani on 31 January 2023.
I am happy to see that the process is moving forward. Recently, we have seen an escalation of tension between all Macedonia and Bulgaria, with the probable incidence and provocations we condemn the attack in Orit the same way. The authorities in this copy did at the same time, we're here on acceptable statements made by some nationalist politicians, inciting hatred and implying violence.
I strongly condemn any incitement to violence working together to promote an atmosphere of dialogue and mutual respect is crucial, because this is the European way, and this is the basis of which the European Union is being built and again, especially in these times when the foundations of Europe are threatened by an aggressor aiming to destabilize the continent and to redefine its security architecture.
