Jolevski and Besimi on a prayer breakfast in Washington

Вашингтон, 5 February, 2015 - 10:40 (META) 

Macedonian officials, led by Defense Minister Zoran Jolevski and Deputy Prime Minister Fatmir Besimi, will attend the traditional prayer breakfast in Washington with US President Barack Obama.

Macedonian delegation will consist of MPs Vlatko Gjorchev, Roza Topuzova-Karevska and Silvana Boneva, the wife of former Macedonian president, Vilma Trajkovska, and former Health Minister Imer Selmani.

The spiritual leader of Tibet, the Dalai Lama, will attend this year’s breakfast, something to which China strongly opposes.

The breakfast will be attended by over 3,000 visitors from around the world. National Prayer Breakfast is held every first Thursday in February, and it is practiced since 1953.
