Federal Foreign Office on the comments made by President Ivanov of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

18.05.2017

With regard to the comments made by President Ivanov of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia concerning the German Ambassador in Skopje, Christine Althauser, a Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement today (18 May):

We are pleased that, after a long period of consideration, President Ivanov has managed to reach the right decision and given up his obstructionist stance. Accusations directed at German diplomats and those of other friendly nations are inappropriate. It is a well-known fact that the assessments conveyed to the guest country always emerge in close coordination between the Foreign Ministry and the Embassy itself.
