Rogi, you don't wish to provide your opinion as politely requested?

Rogi, I am not asking you to answer for others. What I asked was, do you believe I am misrepresenting the ZMR interview? Perhaps I should have said misunderstanding or misinterpreting, either way, would like to hear your opinion on it.

I have done so already numerous times on this forum as well as on the Maknews forum.

I stated then, as I do now, that what was said in that interview, specifically the suggestions of potential new names for Macedonia goes against Macedonia's national interest and the views that I hold as a Macedonian and against the views of the absolute majority of the Macedonian Diaspora and furthermore against the positions of the United Macedonian Diaspora at the time (and now, as far as I am aware).

The consideration of a name change, let alone the suggestion of potentially acceptable names (acceptable to whom?) is the opposite of what anyone advocating for the Macedonian cause and the Macedonian national interest should be doing.

I had a problem with it then, I have a problem with that interview now, and I took that up personally with Meto at the time and have done so a number of times. Until a very recent post on the maknews forum, where it was suggested again that Macedonia might accept a name change as a 'last resort', I was undoubtedly sure that the same position as indicated by the video interview, was no longer held.

Thanks for the response, if you have a link to the relevant suggestion it would be great.

Thanks for the update, I know many were waiting for confirmation of the date. I would like to ask a few things though;

1) What will be the agenda for the night?

2) Will there be another open-day where people can attend a Q&A session free of charge and raise issues, voice concerns, etc - Or is this pay-for-entry event the only opportunity for this?

Thanks in advance.
