New US Ambassador to Macedonia to support the country on its Euro-Atlantic integration

Paul Wohlers told the US Senate on Thursday that he would did his best to help the country proceed on the path to full Euro-Atlantic integration.

The new ambassador is expected to come in Skopje in early September, replacing Philip Reeker, ambassador since 2008.

“I will return to Macedonia during an important period,” Wohlers told the US Senate, noting that the country this year marked 20 years of independence and 10 years since the signing of the Framework Agreement, the deal that ended the country’s civil conflict in 2001.

He also said that Macedonia has made great progress, but much more remains to be done.
