17.6.2014, OSCE – OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities calls on political leaders in Skopje to unite and act to preserve stability

On a visit to Skopje, Kumanovo and Tetovo from 10-13 June 2014, the OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities Astrid Thors expressed serious concern with regard to recurring outbreaks of inter-ethnic incidents in the country. She noted that of immediate concern is the verdict in the 2012 Smiljkovci Lake murder case, which is expected to be delivered tomorrow, 18 June, and pointed out that it could lead to intensified inter-ethnic tensions.

“I continue to urge the political leadership to make a joint call for restraint and calm to avoid any disturbances,” Thors said.
