Nikola Gruevski criticises NATO over blockade

Ahead of the NATO summit in Chicago, Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski harshly criticised the Alliance for nurturing what he described as double standards and selective respect of international law when it comes to country’s accession. 

Just before the start of the summit, Gruevski accused Greece of committing a “crime” against the Macedonian people by blocking the country’s Euro-Atlantic accession, despite a clear ruling by the International Court of Justice, ICJ, at The Hague that the Greek position violates an earlier agreement.

Gruevski said NATO’s conduct towards Macedonia has been “utterly unprincipled and unjust” and he accused the alliance of using Macedonia when it serves NATO’s purpose and otherwise ignoring it.
