Q: Mr. Xhaferi how do you assess the situation after publishing the encyclopedia of "Macedonian" Academy of Science and Arts (MASA)?Arben Xhaferi: I think that the crisis in "Macedonia" springs from pseudo-intellectual circles that have political intention and support. If in other case the crisis had come from inside factors that had been trying to cause crisis illegally, this time the situation is different – neither opposition causes crisis or any other illegal group. Crisis is being created inside the institutions of the system. This distinguishes the present crisis, which is needless but coincides with the situation in "Macedonia", which seeks to represent itself as a victim of plots and projects that hampered its development.
Q: Mr. Ali Ahmeti, leader of the Democratic Union for Integration (DUI) stated that the encyclopedia breaks the truce in 2001 and ‘evokes a war’. Weather the encyclopedia could trigger escalation of the interethnic relations in "Macedonia"?
Arben Xhaferi: Mr. Ahmeti by himself is among those that caused the crisis in "Macedonia" and he still hasn’t explained logically why did he brought the crisis. I think he has no definition for that crisis, no arguments way he acted that way in 2001. At the moment he has no moral right to define anything regarding "Macedonia". He was the initiator of a crisis and later he was trying in a slavish way to contribute to preservation of the integration of the country, due to his integration policy, which was in deed an obscenity variant of servility.
