What about Macedonia?

Macedonia, the other Yugoslav republic seeking independence, was omitted from the editorial "365 Days in Yugoslavia," March 10. In September, 95 percent of Macedonia's people voted for independence. In December it petitioned the European Community (EC) for recognition. In January the Badinter Commission ruled that Macedonia had complied with all EC requirements, yet recognition was not given. In March it is the forgotten republic.

Those of us who believe in the American way of life are morally obliged to support freedom-loving people in their quest for democracy. Full diplomatic recognition is the key. Virginia Nizamoff Surso, Fort Wayne, Ind., Macedonian Patriotic Organization of the US and Canada
