Bitola, 9 February 2018 (MIA) - The dialogue between Macedonia and Russia is characterized by sustainable partnership and friendship between the two nations spanning several centuries, Russian Ambassador Oleg Shcherbak said in Bitola attending an event marking the Diplomats' Day.
Russia, the Ambassador said, wants to see its cooperation with the Macedonian friends advanced further in all areas.
"We are prepared to walk the road as far as Macedonia is prepared to go," stated Shcherbak.
In 24 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries, there was not a single interference by the Russian embassy in Macedonia, not a single interference of Russia's foreign policy in Macedonia's internal affairs, the Russian Ambassador underscored.
"I take this occasion to reiterate that we champion overall progress of our cooperation with the Republic of Macedonia in all spheres, in politics, economy, culture, in the humanitarian sphere. I would like to stress that we stand ready to further develop our cooperation," Shcherbak said.
February 10 is declared a national day in Russia to celebrate Diplomat's Day, a professional commemoration day honoring Russian diplomats around the world.
Traditionally, the Russian embassy in Macedonia marked Diplomat's Day in Bitola by laying wreaths at a monument dedicated to the Russian imperial consul Alexander Rostkovski, who was assassinated in Bitola 115 years ago. ba/17:02
