The United Macedonian Diaspora (“UMD”) expresses its strong outrage that the European Parliament has ceased referring – in official European Union (“EU”) documents -- to the Republic of Macedonia’s language as “Macedonian” and, instead, has begun using the mindless term “official language”. UMD, on behalf of its members and supporters in the EU, North America, Australia and elsewhere, calls on the EU to immediately end this highly offensive practice.

After years of public pressure, even the most ardent Gligorovisti/Bitovisti will come out with something decent now and then.

More UMD praise for the Framework Agreement:

Quote:
With American cooperation and support, Macedonia has emerged as a model of multi-cultural peace and stability in a region long plagued with strife and well known for its inter-ethnic tensions.
I am interested in seeing the evidence for this gem:

Quote:
The first Macedonian to ever set foot in the Americas was Dragan of Ohrid, who sailed together with Christopher Columbus, in 1492.

UMD Meets with UN Envoy Nimetz

The United Macedonian Diaspora (“UMD”) met yesterday with the United Nations (“UN”) Special Envoy, Mediator Matthew Nimetz, in New York. During the meeting UMD stressed the unprecedented resolution asking the Republic of Macedonia to negotiate over its official name. These imposed “name negotiations” have de facto deprived the basic right of self-identification from the millions of Macedonians worldwide, and the UMD delegation used the opportunity to call once again for their immediate termination.

Default Друцас налутен од односот на Унгарија кон

Унгарија треба да ги почитува договорите и едногласните одлуки на ЕУ и да има во предвид дека како претседавач зборува во името на целата унија и сите нејзини земји членки. Ова, според атинската новинска агенција му го кажал Димитрис Друцас на Јанош Мартоњи на средбата во Берлин во рамките на неформалниот НАТО самит.

It is slowly coming out that UMD isn't really against the name negotiations. Another ploy to attempt to placate public opinion. Why even meet with Nimitz? What could possibly be the purpose of such a meeting? Further, what exactly is the meaning of this:
Quote:
Furthermore, while Macedonia has demonstrated its commitment to partake in these mediations, Greece on the other hand, has continued to decline many proposals that have been put forward, and has been vetoing Macedonia’s membership in Euro-Atlantic organizations, such as NATO and the EU.
More support for name change proposals!
