THE GHOST PROTOCOL - Merkel’s message to Mickovski. What did she say or rather who didnt she want to listen in? Keep British rebel group out?

Skopje, Macedonia

On Saturday 8 September 2018 - Macedonia’s independence day - German Prime Minister (Chancellor) Angela Merkel arrived in Macedonia to bolster the pro NATO and Macedonia name change referendum to be held at the end of this month. She met with the country’s Prime Minister Zoran Zaev (see photo below on the right) at a political love fest that passed as a media conference.

Later in the day she met with Macedonia’s main opposition leader from VMRO-DPMNE Christian Mickovski at the German Embassy in Skopje. After his meeting, Mickovski gave an impromptu media conference outside the Embassy but did not reveal too much. Days later he came out with the Party’s official position on the 30 September referendum - which was a bit of this and bit of that - not saying boycott but not saying turn up and vote either.


This is a very important point, missed by many, but not by some certain factions - perhaps too strong a word - within the British political Establishment who oppose the controversial Prespa Agreement signed by Greece and Macedonia, which in effect means erasing Macedonian identity in order to gain EU and NATO membership by removing Greek veto in both organisations. (more on the Prespa Agreement here at this link)

Last year a high ranking British source, angry with US foreign policy towards Macedonia, leaked USAID emails to TEAM UZUNOV blog which gave a glimpse into how deep deep US influence had permeated Macedonian society. see link here


In fact there is a mini-turf war over Macedonia which doesn't involve the US and Russia but Germany and a tiny rebel group in London over influence.

The fear is the Prespa Agreement turns Macedonia into a de facto Hellenic Hong Kong, a province of Greece, which means German control.

Part of the reason for Brexit, was the fear of Germany taking a stranglehold on the British economy via the migrant crisis.

The majority of the British political establishment support the Prespa Agreement, more because of the UK’s membership of NATO than for anything else. The previous UK Ambassador Charles Garrett played a leading role in “name change” for Macedonia.

The Germany Embassy besides providing Mrs Merkel with physical security also “protects” her conversations from surveillance and eavesdropping.

In 2010 it was claimed the US had tapped the German Chancellor’s telephone . see link here
