In the new year, I wish for everyone to love our common homeland, the Republic of Macedonia, more and every single one of us to contribute to a more beautiful society for our children, parents, relatives, neighbors and friends. I wish for people to respect each other more, for more love to be spread and for people to come to peace with themselves and with everybody else," President Ivanov says in his New Year's address. ba/12:29
