ROMAS DEMAND EDUCATION IN ROMA LANGUAGE
"We urge for introduction of Roma language education in all of the European countries, said one of the paragraphs of the resolution adopted at the European Romas Forum which took place in Strasbourg this month.
The Macedonian deputy, Ljatif Demir, in the European Roma Forum, stated this, explaining that 72 deputies from 42 countries are included in the forum which was founded in the year 2004.
At yesterday's press conference in Skopje, Demir pointed out that Macedonia's six member delegation is the largest represented in the forum, in a Makfax news agency report.
"Forging a partnership relation between the Forum and the Council of Europe is unprecedented case, which will pave way for the Forum to act as a loudspeaker for the interest of Romas in the Council itself and on national level as well", Ljatif Demir said.
The Resolution adopted at the 2nd Plenary Session of the Forum binds the Ministerial Committee of the Council of Europe to acknowledge the Charter of European Romas Rights. It calls for respecting the right of Romas in all European countries, opening of cultural centers and respecting the Roma language as one of the European languages.
MD: Did you know Romas in Macedonia have the most rights and freedom than in any other European country? Also Macedonia is the only country where Romas are represented in politics.
