AHMETI URGES GRUEVSKI TO CONDEMN ENCYCLOPEDIA
DUI leader Ali Ahmeti described the Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski's reaction over Macedonian Encyclopedia as insufficient.
In an interview for Albania's Top Channel TV late on Sunday, Ahmeti made it clear that Gruevski has to condemn the act that incites war and he demanded that the encyclopedia be withdrawn, Makfax correspondent reported.
"The encyclopedia is a mean provocation by Macedonians and Gruevski is of Macedonian nationality. Therefore, a timely reaction is needed to avert escalation of the situation," Ahmeti said.
Several TV stations and print media in Tirana claim the encyclopedia had shaken up the government's work.
The media, citing sources close to Macedonia's government, claim that ethnic Albanian ministers in PM Gruevski's Cabinet had a bitter quarrel with their ethnic Macedonian counterparts regarding the encyclopedia.
The media in Albania say it is not enough Macedonian prime minister only to admit that some parts of the encyclopedia insult the Albanians but he should condemn the encyclopedia.
