The President of the Republic of Macedonia, Dr. Gjorge Ivanov, received today Mr. Milan Kucan, former President of the Republic of Slovenia, who is visiting the Republic of Macedonia.

The Macedonian President expressed gratitude for the current open and unreserved support from the Republic of Slovenia in view of Macedonia's aspirations for membership in the European Union and NATO, stressing that the Republic of Macedonia always sees a sincere friend and partner in the Republic of Slovenia. The Republic of Slovenia has shown its solidarity with the Republic of Macedonia during the migration crisis.

In that direction, President Ivanov expressed expectation that the cooperation between the two countries in all spheres of mutual interest will continue in the period that follows, regarding the European and Euro-Atlantic integrations of the Republic of Macedonia, as well as within the frameworks of the regional initiatives.

Former President Kucan stressed that the European Union must have an active role and remove the obstacle that Greece puts on the path of Macedonia's Euro-integration.

"With European reforms, the Republic of Macedonia has completed its part of the work, it remains for the European Union to complete its part of the work", the former Slovenian President underlined.

The President of the Republic of Macedonia, Dr. Gjorge Ivanov, on the occasion of the Day of Europe, May 9th, sent a congratulation note to Mr. Donald Tusk, President of the European Council.

Your Excellency,

Let me use this opportunity to convey, on behalf of the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia and on my personal behalf, the most sincere congratulations on the occasion of the Day of Europe, May 9th.

First and foremost, I would like to thank you for your participation in the meeting of the leaders of the participating countries in the Brdo-Brijuni Process in Skopje. Your participation in this event sent a positive and encouraging message on the European future of each country in the region.

"Europe is not just a continent, it is also an idea. This idea is called freedom", said the great European Coudenhove-Kalergi. As we approach the European family, we are moving the Macedonian society towards the free flow of people, capital, goods, services and ideas. Approaching the Union, we are motivated to voluntarily transform and reform for the benefit of the Macedonian citizens. The Republic of Macedonia is ready, immediately and promptly, to start the next phase of integration into the European Union, which was indeed confirmed by the latest European Commission Progress Report on the Republic of Macedonia and the unconditional recommendation for setting a date for the start of accession negotiations. Membership for us is both a right and an obligation, just as the credible European perspective in the Western Balkans is an obligation for the European Union. As a country, we remain consistent in fulfilling the undertaken obligation to implement the decision of the European Union and keep the Balkan migrant corridor closed.

I call upon you to apply the already confirmed positive practice of parallel processes of Euro-integration and overcoming open bilateral issues in the case of the Republic of Macedonia. In good faith and desire for a stable and prosperous region, mutually acceptable and sustainable solutions are possible, in accordance with international law and respect for the right to self-identification and human dignity.

With such an expectation and wishes for good health, further professional success and personal happiness, I convey to you, Mr. President, my dear friend, the assurances of my highest consideration.

Dr. Gjorge Ivanov

The President of the Republic of Macedonia, Dr. Gjorge Ivanov, met today in Dojran with the President of the Republic of Bulgaria, Rumen Radev, who is paying a working visit to the Republic of Macedonia.

The meeting discussed the deepening of the excellent bilateral relations by strengthening the political dialogue, the integration processes of the Republic of Macedonia, and exchanged views on the current challenges in the region and the European Union.

President Ivanov voiced hope that the Republic of Bulgaria, as current chairman of the European Union, will continue to support the Macedonian integration processes, after obtaining the positive recommendation from the European Commission, especially for determining the date for the start of accession negotiations.

"The EU-Western Balkans Summit in Sofia, following the Brdo-Brijuni Process, will be an excellent opportunity to reaffirm the European perspective for full integration of the Western Balkan countries, because only that guarantees the peace, stability and prosperity of our region , which is still exposed to security and geostrategic challenges", the Macedonian President said.

The Bulgarian President expressed satisfaction with the participation of the members of the Army of the Republic of Macedonia at the military parade in Sofia.

President Ivanov and President Radev also discussed the promotion of security and military cooperation and exchanged views on the activities aimed at tackling the challenges of illegal migration, terrorism and violent extremism.

At the meeting, the two presidents reaffirmed the mutual commitment to constructively promote the overall friendly relations between the two countries and in that context expressed satisfaction with the continuing political dialogue at the highest level. President Ivanov, at the invitation of President Radev, will pay a return visit to the Republic of Bulgaria in June this year.
