“I would like to point out once again at the strong commitment and dedication of the Government of the Republic of Macedonia for full and consistent realization of the criteria and recommendations contained in the report as well as further continuation of the reform processes in all segments of the social life,” says Gruevski letter to Barroso.
Finally, Macedonian PM expresses his wish for soon meeting with the head of the European Commission.
