Sofia, 16 May 2018 (MIA) – Macedonia and Greece have been undertaking a historic role by their commitment to settling the name, French President Emmanuel Macron said Wednesday in Sofia at a meeting with Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev.
France has been following the political developments in the region, Macron said, commending Macedonia’s reforms. France, he said, will support Macedonia’s efforts to implement the changes and speed up the progress.
Zaev on his part said that Macedonia was resuming the reforms in the spheres of judiciary, public administration and media, notifying that all projects to that effect are being implemented in cooperation with the opposition, the government said in a press release.
‘Macedonia is a successful story in the Balkan region and deserves a recognition that will be consistent with its achievements. We support your efforts for more cohesive, functional and sustainable EU. France’s leadership is a motivation for the region and Macedonia,’ Zaev told Macron.
Zaev and Macron are in Sofia for the EU-Western Balkans Summit, which kicks off in Bulgaria’s capital on Thursday. lk/20:50
