The security council of Macedonia has demanded that the international community should declare the Albanian armed formation as "a terrorist organisation in accordance with the principles of international law" and view as such. The RIA Novosti correspondent reports that, in course of a session in Skoplje, the security council of Macedonia has invited the international community, the Kosovo peace-keeping force and the United Nations civilian mission "maximally seriously" to perform their duties in Kosovo, as necessitated by the UN Security Council resolution No 1244. The council has backed the governmental steps directed at non-admission of new terrorist attacks and said that, after the assassination of eight Macedonian servicemen and policemen, the situation in the country has "seriously worsened". The Macedonian security council stated at the session that the on-going events are wholly unrelated to the democratic political dialogue in Macedonia and are "bloodshed violence". The session of the Macedonian security council has been gathered by the president of Macedonia and its supreme commander-in-chief, Boris Trajkovski. They say in Skoplje that the leader of the opposition party of democratic well-being of Albanians, Ime Imeri, has refused to take part in work of the council sitting. Before its work ended, leader Ilyaz Halimi of another party, the Albanian democratic party which is part of the governmental coalition, walked out of the conference hall.
