Skopje, 12 February 2018 (MIA) - Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev held talks Monday in Ankara with Turkish Parliament Speaker Ismail Kahraman, who expressed satisfaction that after three years the two countries restored the cooperation at the highest level.
Kahraman reaffirmed his country's support of Macedonia's bid to join NATO and the European Union. He also invited his Macedonian counterpart to visit Turkey, the government said in a press release.
'Turkey is great Macedonia's friend and together we shall foster the economic cooperation. The EU, NATO membership are rather important for ensuring better living standard, prospects for Macedonia and its citizens. I call you as a Parliament of a great, friendly country to keep supporting Macedonia on this road,' PM Zaev told Kahraman.
On behalf of the citizens and government of Macedonia, Zaev extended condolences over the death of Turkish soldiers. Macedonia and Turkey stand firmly against terrorism and promote peace across the globe, Zaev and Kahraman said.
PM Zaev laid fresh flowers on the part of Turkey's Parliament building demolished during the 2016 coup attempt, paying respect to those killed while defending the state institutions. lk/18:47
