WE, the undersigned, citizens and residents of the United States of America and of countries around the world interested in advancing American interests in Southeast Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean and regional stability, petition the Obama administration to: REVERSE the Executive Order by the Bush Administration of 2004, recognizing the country of the “FYROM” as “Republic of Macedonia”.
U.S. Administration thought in 2004 that by recognizing FYROM as Macedonia would have brought stability. It was fooled. Sign the petition and ask Washington to restore truth and justice! https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/restoration-of-historical-truth-about-macedonia.html
The recognition of the F.Y.R.O.M. as “Republic of Macedonia” by the Bush Administration was intended to assist the stability in the country in relation with the Albanians, and other minorities. Instead of stability, the recognition of the country by the United States as “The Republic of Macedonia” assisted the ethnocentric Slav led government to use it as a tool to enact despotic laws and autocratic practices such as restriction of the Press and imprisonment of political prisoners.
Furthermore, for various reasons, F.Y.R.O.M. continually provokes its neighbors and especially Greece. It has perceived the U.S. recognition as approval and encouragement for its identity theft and identity fraud. Since its recognition by the United States, as “The Republic of Macedonia”, the F.Y.R.O.M. has increased its inimical and provocative actions against Greece, driven by their ill perceived “national goals” of expansionism at the expense of Greece.
F.Y.R.O.M.’s continued provocative and irresponsible narrative fuels their domestic nationalism and regional instability, creates unpredictable conditions for the region and indeed the world.
Taking into consideration the above, WE, the undersigned American citizens interested in advancing American interests in Southeast Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean and regional stability, petition the Obama administration to reverse the Executive Order by the Bush Administration of 2004, recognizing the country of the “FYROM” as “Republic of Macedonia”.
