Skopje, 14 June 2017 (MIA) - Prime Minister Zoran Zaev has positive expectations from Wednesday’s meeting between Macedonian and Greek foreign ministers, which, as he noted, is expected to pay special attention on increasing the confidence-building measures between the two countries. He believes that everything that is in the interest of both countries in the field of foreign affairs will be discussed.
Every meeting is a chance of finding a way to unblock our processes towards full integration into NATO and the European Union. I know that every friendly meeting can bring positions closer and to find a solution for this small country here in the Balkans, our Republic of Macedonia, finally after so many years to move forward, Zaev told reporters after opening the conference on challenges of unpaid care work and gender inequality.
Today’s meeting is expected to focus on increasing the confidence-building measures between the two countries, to intensify and to hope that citizens will feel more specific results. I believe that everything that is of interest to both countries in the field of foreign affairs will be discussed at the meeting. I expect only positive prospects of such meetings, Zaev said.
He also has positive expectations from today’s debate in the European Parliament over resolution of Macedonia which refers to 2016 EC Report and removal of conditional recommendation.
He said that the milieu is excellent and creates basic conditions to deliver results and both we to the European Union and the European Union to us. Indeed we were encouraged from the meetings that we attended which means obligations here in Macedonia. We have to help ourselves, our country, our citizens and to help the EU in order to assist the Republic of Macedonia, Zaev underlined.
Answering reporter's question, he believes that directors of the Security and Counterintelligence Bureau and the Public Security Bureau will be elected at government’s session on Thursday or Friday. sk/11:56
