SDSM leader Zoran Zaev said on Thursday that FYROM (Macedonia) will be “neutral” next time Pristina’s bid to join UNESCO is put up for a vote.

Asked by TV Prva how Macedonia intends vote, Zaev’s only response was: “Neutral.”

The Macedonian government in 2008 decided in favor of this former Yugoslav republic recognizing Kosovo as independent, confirming an earlier decision made by the Macedonian Assembly.

In 2015, Skopje voted in favor of Pristina’s failed bid to join UNESCO.
