Треба да се погледнат фактите и да се слушнат аргументите, а не секој на свој начин тоа да го толкува. Научниците треба да зборуваат за историјата, а не политичарите. За таа цел договоривме да направиме работни групи кои ќе разговараат точно за проблемите со кои се соочуваме“.

The Council of Europe held an event on November 25, 2013 to "celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Framework Convention (for the Protection of National Minorities)".

Bulgaria has ratified the agreement but is free to continue denying the existence of its Macedonian minority, execute state-sponsored discrimination and ignore various European Court of Human Rights rulings in favour of the Macedonian minority. Greece, which has never ratified the agreement (was this fact really "celebrated" by the CoE?), is, of course, free to do the same.
