Relations between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Macedonia are not at all marred by open political issues. Our duty is only to resume the cooperation, urged Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov after meeting with his Macedonian host and counterpart Antonio Milososki on Wednesday in Ohrid.
“Today’s meeting aims at taking advantage of the determination for mutual cooperation, which has been historically existing between our countries for establishment of modern ties in a bid to advance cooperation in the spheres of culture, economy and investments, in line with the agreement made by the presidents of Russia and Macedonia – Dmitry Medvedev and Gjorge Ivanov – at their last year’s meeting in Saint Petersburg,” Lavrov said.
FMs Milososki and Lavrov discussed the course of the implementation of what was agreed by countries’ presidents.
Milososki stated that both countries were sharing joint values, sympathies and cultural connection that could serve as a capital to enhance Macedonian-Russian relations in both political and economic spheres.
