Address by the President of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia, Mr. Trajko Veljanoski on the occasion of the European Holocaust Remeberance Day
I believe that every one present here today, when we are marking the 65th Anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau, the voiceless symbol of the Holocaust, is wondering why this happened. Why over 6 million people, women, children and seniors were killed in a most brutal manner, only because they were Jews. And God teaches that regardless of our religion we are God’s Creations and we are all equal. This issue should not and must not be limited as personal issue, this is our common issue; and our common obligation is to remember the Holocaust and to preserve the historic memory for this event. Even more important for us is to prevent creation of any condition for repetition of the Holocaust regardless who the victim is, since this is the greatest evil of the history of humanity

Eleven centuries ago, the Republic of Macedonia was far from being on the periphery of the world. On the contrary, it was an important religious, spiritual and educational centre from which the spiritual and cultural values were spread throughout the Christian world. The Macedonian nation and the other ethic communities that live in the Republic of Macedonia can be proud of the fact that the holy brothers Ss.

ADDRESS OF MR. TRAJKO VELJANOSKI, PRESIDENT OF THE ASSEMBLY OF THE REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA ON THE OPENING OF THE 75TH ROSE ROTH SEMINAR
Ladies and gentlemen,
I will not speak about the name issue, since it is a well known issue. I would like to underline that after Bucharest the Republic of Macedonia intensively and in a pragmatic way further develops the cooperation with NATO. Also, the Republic of Macedonia is continuing the negotiations under the auspices of the UN for finding a compromised solution for the imposed dispute. I would like to remind you that the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia has adopted several documents which oblige the Government to continue the negotiations, but at the same time emphasizing that the compromised solution must protect the national, linguistic and cultural identity of the Macedonian nation, and regarding this we have a general political consensus among the political parties, regardless of the ethic belonging and regardless if they belong to the governing or the opposition parties. At the same time, according to the latest opinion polls, over 82% of the citizens support the membership of the Republic of Macedonia in NATO. This clearly demonstrates that the political entities of the Republic of Macedonia and the civil society see that the future of the Republic of Macedonia and the whole region is in the Euro-Atlantic integration

The Safety of the Road Traffic, as part of the overall traffic is a topic and an issue which has widest social interest since this area includes people. In the same time this issue, especially in these dynamic processes of globalization is also receiving a global dimension. The very fact that 1.3 million people in the world are killed in traffic accidents every year and the material and other consequences cannot be calculated, clearly shows that this is a global issue. That is why the United Nations proclaimed 2011-2020 to be the Decade of the Safety on Roads and a adopted a special Resolution
