As per the president’s spokesmen,

“The president stressed that the behavior of those who in any way endanger the rights of children is unacceptable, especially when it comes to children with atypical development,” 

“They should not only enjoy the rights they deserve but also feel equal and welcome at the school desks and schoolyards. It is our obligation, as a state, but also as individuals, and the key element in this common mission is empathy,” it added.

The country’s ombudsman and Commission for Protection against Discrimination have welcomed the action taken by Pendarovski and opened a probe into Embla’s case.
