PM Zoran Zaev pointed out that North Macedonia’s Government remains committed to the Euro-Atlantic reform processes, developing the concept of “one society for all”, the Macedonian model of good neighborly relations, as well as the contribution to regional cooperation in Western Balkans countries, said the Government in a press release.
In July 2019, the Czech Republic is to take charge of the presidency of the Visegrad Group of EU member states of the Central European region. This, according to the press release, would lead to further support for opening the EU accession chapter of North Macedonia. In addition, the Czech Parliament has confirmed it would hold a ratification vote on the NATO Accession Protocol in the coming months.
RNM PM Zaev highlighted the strong commitment of the two countries to maintain and develop friendly political dialogue especially over issues concerning the EU, such as the migrant crisis, as well as to enhance economic cooperation.
Czech Deputy PM Hamáček said the cooperation between the security forces of the two countries was vital, adding that the Czech Republic remained fully open to this cooperation in the future.
