Comment by the Information and Press Department on the abortive coup in Macedonia
We hope that a thorough investigation of the incident is conducted in order to ensure stability and security in Macedonia. We are calling on all political forces of this country to act in line with constitutional democratic institutions and address existing problems through dialogue. The destabilisation of the situation in friendly Macedonia might dangerously escalate persisting inter-ethnic frictions there.
This incident reaffirms the topical nature of the Russian proposal to adopt an OSCE document on the impermissibility of unconstitutional coups.
