San Marino to withdraw? ESC United Exclusive Statement from Director General of San Marino RTV

After a third consecutive non-qualification, San Marino may be withdrawing from the Eurovision Song Contest.  Immediately after Semi-Final 2 at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, the Director General of San Marino RTV gave ESC United editor Zack Kerr an exclusive statement.

“We are very happy for and proud of Valentina and Jimmie, but I think we are too small for this event.  I am not sure that next year we will consider participating.  It is very difficult now to think of taking part again.  There is no place for micro-states in the Eurovision Song Contest.”
– Carlo Romeo, Director General, San Marino RTV, May 11, 2017, 1138pm CET

This is sounding like San Marino may be withdrawing from the Eurovision Song Contest.  We will keep you updated as we hear more.  Until then, please let us know your thoughts on the forum.
