"You are aware of our views, it was not a good agreement but we are supporting it because we believe that the state should have continuity," Vlasis said, noting that "our main priority is to support our historic and cultural heritage, which are essential elements of our nation's identity, as we are doing whatever possible to support the brand name of our Macedonia."
