Ivanov: It is our duty to nurture the legacy of Saints Cyril and Methodius
Tuesday, 22 May 2018 13:39

The right to their own language, education, self-identification are even today basic universal and European human values. Today, I speak the Macedonian language, just as our Slovak friends speak the Slovak language, thanks to the saints Cyril and Methodius, the President of the Republic of Macedonia, Dr. Gjorge Ivanov, pointed out at the opening of the exhibition "Following the Traces of the Saints Cyril and Methodius" of the Slovakian author Pavol Demes, organized by the Embassy of the Republic of Slovakia.

- Today I speak the Macedonian language, just as our Slovak friends speak the Slovak language, thanks to the saints Cyril and Methodius, President Ivanov said.

The spiritual tree of the Saints Cyril and Methodius, the Macedonian President added, is the wealth of Europe, which we call today unity in diversity.

izlozba_2Without this Slavic tree today, we would have an intellectually and spiritually poorer Europe. Therefore, the duty of our generation is to nurture and promote this legacy, thanks to which we have our worldview today, our uniqueness and identity, President Ivanov said.

The exhibition is on the occasion of the 1155 anniversary of the arrival of the Thessaloniki Brothers on the territory of Great Moravia, the ancestors of the Slovaks and the Czechs, and the 25 anniversary of the independence of the Republic of Slovakia. The exhibition is a photographic biography of the Thessaloniki Brothers, the protectors of Europe, to which the author worked for three years. This is a selection of photographs which should show who were Cyril and Methodius, and at the same time why they are so important for the Slavic peoples. The exhibition also includes monuments from various countries, preserved from the time of the Saints Cyril and Methodius or dedicated to them.

Pavol Demes is an expert on foreign policy and civil society. He lives in Bratislava. He is actively photographing and his photographs have been several times exhibited and presented in Slovakia as well as abroad.

Thursday, 17 May 2018 15:07


The President of the Republic of Macedonia, Dr. Gjorge Ivanov, received today a group of participants at the International Scholarly Convention "Days of Macedonian Studies at MANU", which is held at the Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts.

The meeting was attended by Prof. Dr. Marjan Markovik, organizer of the conference and member of MANU, prominent linguist, professor of Macedonian, Slavic and Balkan languages, Dr. Motoki Nomachi, from Japan, Prof. Dr. Christina Kramer, a professor of Macedonian language from the University of Toronto, Prof. Dr. Jan Sokolovski from the University of Wroclaw from Poland and Prof. Dr. Tatjana Vendina, who leads the prestigious project of the Slavic Linguistic Atlas at the International Committee of Slavic Studies.

Professor Markovik informed about the project of MANU "Digital Resources of the Macedonian Language" (http://drmj.manu.edu.mk/). Professors Kramer and Sokolovski informed about the increased interest in learning the Macedonian language in Canada and Poland. The Japanese professor Motoki Nomachi, at the meeting with President Ivanov, shared his views and the current scientific work on the Macedonian literary language, as well as the story of the lost grammar he spoke of at today's scientific convention at MANU. The Japanese Professor Nomachi in the Moscow archives found the Grammar of the Macedonian language, written in 1946-47 by the Russian Professor Samuel Borisovich Bernshtein, commissioned by the Presidium of ASNOM, a book that was published and considered missing for 70 years.

At the meeting with the Slavists, President Ivanov stressed the importance of the work of the professors of Macedonian language and thanked them for their great contribution to the study and affirmation of the Macedonian language.

"The scientific approach and systematic study of the Macedonian language are of utmost importance for its overall affirmation, especially in times of unprincipled attempts to rename it", President Ivanov said at the meeting.

The Macedonian President stressed that the language is the foundation of the identity of every nation and its denial is a blow to fundamental human rights and dignity. In this context, President Ivanov stressed that the Macedonian language, as an official language of the state, is a lingua franga, an expression of the unity of our country, and a basic communication code that connects and unites all segments of the Macedonian multiethnic, multi-religious and multilingual society.

Doctor Honoris Causa for President Ivanov at the Cumhuriyet University in Sivas, Turkey
Friday, 11 May 2018 12:13

The President of the Republic of Macedonia, Gjorge Ivanov, today in Sivas, Turkey, was awarded the title Doctor Honoris Causa by the prestigious Cumhuriyet University.

The award was given to President Ivanov him at a solemn ceremony organized by the rector of the University, Dr. Alim Yildiz, after which the Macedonian President delivered a lecture on the topic "Ataturk and Macedonia".

During his lecture, President Ivanov stressed that this title represents a privilege and honor to him, all the more that it is awarded in Sivas, the city where in 1919 at Ataturk's initiative, the historic and revolutionary congress was held marking the beginning of the struggle for independence and the rule of the citizens of Turkey.

- Ataturk considered that with the Congress in Sivas, the Turkish people took sovereignty in their hands again. He believed that the only way that Turkey would become a modern nation is through a political system in which there will be no division, but a unity of power, concentrated in a single authority that reflects national sovereignty. Therefore, the Grand National Assembly emerged as a body that controled the legislative, executive and judicial powers. As elected President of the Grand Assembly, Ataturk gained tremendous power necessary to make essential reforms in the country, Ivanov said.

Sivas_4The connection between Mustafa Kemal and Macedonia, according to the Macedonian president, is not only geographical. Macedonia, said the President, was the window through which Ataturk met these values, it was the space where his character was defined, where his views were built, where the ideas ripened out of which the Republic of Turkey emerged later.

- Macedonia is not only the place where he was born, but the place where his worldview, his character and his perceptions were formed. Ataturk in Macedonia directly studied the importance of coexistence, learned the Macedonian values, such as the acceptance of others. Later, what he learned in Macedonia, he applied in Turkey. Therefore, the source of his model for thorough reforms is in Bitola, which at the time of his stay was the proud city of consuls in which intelligence, but also the wider population, was exposed to Western, European values. Bitola was the window to Europe, a space from where the advanced ideas entered the Empire, the Macedonian President said in his lecture.

In his lecture, President Ivanov referred to the sources from where Ataturk draws his ideals which he applied in the transformation of Turkey.

-He tore the entire political fabric, turned the monarchy into a republic, reduced the empire to a territory, transformed the religious state into a secular republic, overthrew the Sultan, expelled the Caliph and rejected all ties with the Ottoman Empire. He made one of the greatest cultural, political and socio-economic transformations in modern times. That is how Turkey was born, as a national secular state, said Ivanov.

President Ivanov has received numerous awards from higher education institutions and organizations in the world. The Macedonian President was named Honorary Professor at the Moscow University "Lomonosov" and "Southwest University of Finance and Economics" in Chengdu, PR China. Honorary doctorates have been awarded by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in Sofia, the Istanbul University, the Hadzi Bektashi Veli University in Nevsehir, the TOBB University of Economics and Technology in Ankara, the Academy of Public Administration of Azerbaijan in Baku, Christian Demetrius Kantemir University in Bucharest, and was named member of the World Academy of Arts and Sciences and Honorary Protector of the European Academy of Arts and Sciences in Salzburg.

In the framework of his visit to Turkey, President Ivanov had meetings with the Mayor and the Governor of Sivas, and tomorrow in Istanbul, the Macedonian President will attend and address the Global Leadership Forum.
