Skopje, 6 March 2018 (MIA) - Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov informed the foreign policy adviser in the government of Germany, Jan Hecker, about the course of reform implementation deemed vital for the European and Euro-Atlantic perspective of Macedonia.

An emphasis was put on the challenges in the process, including the course of the negotiations with Greece aimed at overcoming differences over the name.
