The President of the opposition political party VMRO-DPMNE, Nikola Gruevski has met today with the Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, with whom he spoke about the Macedonian-Albanian relations, the current political condition, and Macedonia’s strategic priorities.

Grueski has told Rama that he is supporting the idea of an open cooperation with Republic of Albania, based on a principal basis.

-Various documents such as the Tirana platform will not help. The platform both in the form it was promoted and its essence will not contribute to the development of the friendship based on sincere basis between two countries and can have a negative effect regarding the mutual coexistence in Republic of Macedonia – said Gruevski. He has stressed that the good relations between both countries should be developed and to contribute to calming of the ambiance in order to build trust which is needed for the region’s economic and political development.

VMRO-DPMNE’s party leader has stressed that Republic of Albania’s support is welcomed for an integration in NATO and there are shared challenges in the advancement on the road towards the European Union.
