The Desecration of the Greek Cemetary “An Isoleated Act of Violence” according to FYROM

March 25, 2013

Broken crosses and destroyed tombs are seen in the photographs published by protothema.gr. The vandals let loose all their fury against the dead Greeks…The desecration of the Greek cemetary shows in a clear manner where the nationalist policies of the Prime Minister of Skopje is leading, policies that systematically feeds the citizens of fYROM with hate against Greece.

One day after the publication of the photographs that provoke sadness and outrage, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of FYROM expressed its regret and condemned the desecration, carried out by persons unknown, of the Greek Military Cemetery of the First World War in the town of Valandovo.

However the Foreign Affairs Ministry of FYROM avoids to pledge that it will repair the damages in the cemetery, as would be expected in an effort to construct good neighbourly relations with Greece.

In its statement the Foreign Affairs Ministry of FYROM mentions that, as soon as the incident became known, all necessary measures were taken by the competent authorities of the country in order to clarify it.

Full Statement of the Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of FYROM:

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Macedonia is sad to have learned of the vandalization of the Greek World War I Military Cemetery near the town of Valandovo.

On that note, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Macedonia would like to inform that, immediately after receiving the initial information of the incident, all relevant authorities in the country invested the maximum of their efforts and took all measures necessary in order to establish the facts surrounding the incident.

Moreover, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Macedonia most vehemently condemns this shameful act. In that context, the Ministry would like to emphasize that good-neighbourly relations may and will not be held hostage to isolated acts of violence perpetrated by individual citizens.
