SKANDERBEG MONUMENT IN SKOPJE
Cair mayor Izet Mexhiti and DUI leader Ali Ahmeti unveiled the monument of George Kastrioti - Skanderbeg in front of the Ilinden Mall in Skopje yesterday.
DUI leader Ali Ahmeti expressed his gratitude for the attendance of representatives of state institutions, the international community, as well as guests from Albania and Kosovo, adding that ethnic Albanians throughout Macedonia gathered in Skopje to celebrate the Balkan and European hero.
"This day in November will mark not only the victory for us Albanians, but also for all Macedonian citizens. One should salute the courage and all initiatives undertaken by all institutions, former and present. I salute the courage of Parliament Speaker Ljubisa Georgievski for his attendance, because Skanderbeg belongs to all European values," Ahmeti said.
MD: There is much to do about the monument, many are against it, saying that Skopje isnt the rightplace for such a monument and that the monument is illegal built. But it's standing now.
