PM Zaev meets Turkish Vice-Premier Cavusoglu

Skopje, 21 December 2017 (MIA) - Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and Turkish Vice Premier Hakan Cavusoglu discussed Thursday in Skopje on possibilities for advancing the bilateral relations and cooperation, especially in the spheres of economy and trade, the government said in a press release.

Following the election of a new government, Macedonia has entered a period of stability and deserves to be a NATO member, Cavusoglu said, reaffirming his country's support to that effect.

He also expressed hope for Macedonia to soon  obtain a date for opening the EU accession talks and commended the new government's policies for respecting of all ethnic communities in the country.

PM Zaev extended gratitude for Turkey's support of Macedonia's bid to join the EU and NATO.

Macedonia's government, Zaev said, has been implementing reforms and building friendly relations with the neighbors hoping for these policies to contribute to turning the country's Euro-Atlantic strategic goals into reality next year.

The meeting voiced a joint commitment to policies that promote peace, stability, security in both countries, the region and across the globe.

Cavusoglu thanked Zaev for his presence at a ceremony that honored the Turkish Language Education Day - 21 December- the national holiday of the Turkish community in Macedonia, the press release reads. lk/17:24
