Robertson: Macedonia's progress owed to courageous leadership and reforms
Macedonia's progress would not be possible without the courageous leadership and the successful reforms, said members of the Ohrid Group, friends and supporters of Macedonia, led by Sir George Robertson, at Tuesday's meeting with Prime Minister Zoran Zaev at the sidelines of the EU-Western Balkans Summit in London.

Former NATO Secretary General Robertson said members of the Ohrid Group endorsed the letter sent to heads of state and government of EU and NATO member-states, for a positive decision of the European Council and the NATO membership invitation, the Government said in a press release.

The Ohrid Group, comprised of seasoned diplomats and politicians, highlighted Macedonia's exceptional progress and the historic importance of the name agreement, which has opened the doors to the NATO membership and the EU accession talks date.

PM Zaev briefed the Ohrid Group on the coming steps towards the agreement's implementation, including the pending referendum where citizens will have the final say over the country's future.

Ohrid Group members voiced their commitment to supporting Macedonia, saying the country has a unique chance for permanent stabilization and achievement of its strategic objectives - EU and NATO accession - which guarantee economic progress and democratic institutions, reads the press release.
