Statement attributable to the Spokesman for the Secretary-General on the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

We are following developments unfolding in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia with great concern and call for restraint and calm. Violence directed at democratic institutions and elected representatives of the people is unacceptable. 

We urge all political forces to resolve their differences through democratic means, strictly adhering to the Constitution, in order to overcome the political impasse without further delay.

Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General
