(VIDEO) The Premier of Victoria offended the Macedonians by claiming that Macedonia is Greek

The Premier of Victoria reiterated the view, that first was expressed by former Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, that 'Macedonia is as Greek as the Parthenon.'.

Thousands of students and representatives of Greek brotherhoods and organisations took part in a parade at the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne to commemorate Greek National Day.

Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews at the celebration of the Greek Independence Day  insulted the Macedonian people, by saying, quote: "Gough Whitlam said that Macedonia is as Greek as Partenon and I fully agree with his statement." 

The Macedonian community of Victoria, as well as the rest of Australia are very disappointed by Andrews.

This statement comes just days after Bill Shorten apologised to the Macedonian people.
