Skopje, 16 November 2017 (MIA) - New window of opportunities are opening which will help Macedonia to focus on implementing the ambitious reform agenda, OSCE Secretary General Thomas Greminger said Thursday after meeting Prime Minister Zoran Zaev.

Transparent, trustworthy media, as well as inclusive institutions are vital to provide a prosperous future for the country and its citizens,' the OSCE Secretary General said.
Zaev commended OSCE assistance to Macedonia's progress, saying that all recommendations, including the ones of the European Commission, have been incorporated in the government's reform plan.
Under this plan, Macedonia will work on establishing democratic institutions, independent judiciary, free media...Special attention is being paid to establishing fair, efficient judicial system and advancing the country's relations with its neighbors, Zaev said.
