President Stevo Pendarovski, as part of his working visit to Ukraine on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the country’s independence, met today in Kiev with the President of the European Council, Charles Michel.
At the meeting, the interlocutors exchanged views on the latest developments in the context of the European Union enlargement process, as well as on the Macedonian progress in key reform areas and the possibilities for holding the first intergovernmental conference.
President Pendarovski reaffirmed the view that holding the first intergovernmental conference in the near future is a key priority for North Macedonia, emphasizing the need for the European Union to step up the efforts to boost relations with the Western Balkans. President Pendarovski reaffirmed the position that bilateral issues should not be an obstacle to valorizing the progress of any country on the road to the European Union and that in that context a solution should be sought for our country.
In addition, the interlocutors referred to the situation in the European Union and in our country, and exchanged views and information on the developments in Afghanistan.
