President Stevo Pendarovski had a video conversation today with Sithong Chitnhothinh, the newly appointed Ambassador of the People’s Democratic Republic of Laos to the Republic of North Macedonia, resident in Vienna, on the occasion of presenting the letters of credence, which, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, were sent via diplomatic channels.
President Pendarovski stressed the importance of promoting a positive agenda for cooperation between the two countries, including in the context of regulating the contractual framework, reaffirming the interest in deepening cooperation in all areas of mutual interest where there are many opportunities, especially in the economic sphere, pharmaceutical industry and in the field of culture.
The interlocutors expressed satisfaction with the mutual cooperation in multilateral organizations, especially within the UN and the International Organization of La Francophonie. In that context, they also discussed the upcoming Francophonie Summit, whose relevance is enhanced by the pandemic that has affected all OIF members.
Congratulating Ambassador Chitnhothinh on his appointment, President Pendarovski wished him good health and successful performance of his responsible diplomatic duties.
