In his address, President Pendarovski assessed the current political and social processes in the region, the economic and energy crisis, the consequences of the war in Ukraine and the global security challenges. Keeping our European course is significant, but also the need for proactivity of the European Union with an increased focus on the European agenda towards the countries of the Western Balkans.
