Greek Government concerned over violent clashes in FYROM
In a public statement, the Foreign Ministry of Greece expresses concerns that FYROM is "sliding into deep political crisis" and calls on FYROMís political rivals to show a "spirit of compromise and collaboration" because there is the danger of "explosive situations.".
On Thursday, demonstrators swarmed FYROMís parliament building and assaulted several lawmakers in light of a controversial vote to elect a new parliament speaker. It has been months since FYROM political powers try to form a new government.
Violent clashes followed the attack inside and outside the parliament building. Supporters of former prime minister Nikola Gruevski attacked their opponents of the Social Democrat party in parliament.
SDSM party leader, Zoran Zaev, was one of those attacked and he has been greeted by hundreds of supporters. Zoran Zaev and several other lawmakers from his party appeared outside the Social Democratic headquarters in the capital several hours after the attack.
According to FYROM police, 77 people were injured, including 22 police officers.
