This was reported on Friday by Albania's Top Channel TV outlet, Tanjug said.

Eight Macedonian police officers and 14 ethnic Albanian terrorists died in clashes in the northern Macedonian town

last week.

Speaking during a NATO ministerial meeting, Bushati stressed that the Ohrid Agreement and its implementation represent "the basis for the democratic stability and Euro-Atlantic future of Macedonia."

Any further escalation "does not go in favor of the democratic stability and prosperity of Macedonia," he said.

Bushati added that "the language of hatred and extremism" should be abandoned, while "democratic rights in Macedonia should be respected."
