While visiting Macedonia on Friday, Romanian PM Viorica Dancila has made new more mistakes, stating that she is the first prime minister who visits the Republic of Macedonia, but also that the citizens of this country are “Macedon”, instead of “Macedonian”.
“It is a great pleasure for me to be in Skopje today as the first prime minister visiting the Republic of Macedonia“, said Viorica Dancila at the beginning of the joint statement with her Macedonian counterpart, Zoran Zaev (photo). A glass broke at that moment, which made Dancila stop her speech for some moments.
The first prime minister having visited the Republic of Macedonia was Tony Blair, the former UK prime minister, who visited the country in May, 1999. The last visit paid by a premier in the Republic of Macedonia was also a British one, namely Theresa May, on May 17, 2018.
At the same time, during the visit to Skopje, Dancila made another mistake, saying “Macedon” instead of “Macedonian”.
She also stated that Aromanians are citizens, instead of ethnic of Macedonian nationality, when she referred to the Aromanian communities from the Republic of Macedonia and to the Macedonians from Romania.
