Zvizdic said that there are no open issues between the two countries.
"Macedonia and BiH are the most similar countries in the region and understood each other well. They face similar political and economic problems, and what is important is that we have the same basic goal, and that is moving towards the EU," Zvizdic said.
He said that the two countries want peace, economic prosperity, environment for economic development and improving the living standard.
Both prime ministers also discussed the improvement of the economic cooperation.

"It is necessary to connect the region better and in the shortest possible time as well as to establish flight that would connect Skopje and Sarajevo," Zvizdic said. sk/11:29
