President Ivanov: Macedonia is dealing with the migrant crisis excellently


Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov at the Summit on Climate Change, which was held in Paris, spoke with US President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

President Ivanov told world leaders that Macedonia has declared a crisis situation regarding the migrants and they are doing everything possible not to have any consequences regarding the security to the population.

“Macedonia gets compliments, unlike some other countries who were taken by surprise with the situation and did not cope in the best way possible. President Obama spoke about our Euro-Atlantic integration, and Angela Merkel and I had a long conversation, where we spoke about the problem that concerns all of us in our region, which is becoming increasingly a global issue. She informed the summit that took place between the European Union and Turkey, where measures were planned for the short term, long term, and what are their expectations after that”, said President Ivanov.

President Ivanov also met with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, from whom asked institutions to cooperate and exchange data because it is in the interest of both countries.

“Many of the foreign fighters who are on the battlefields in Syria and Iraq are now coming as refugees and migrants and are making their way through Europe and threatening the security of all of Europe. Therefore, the cooperation of the services not only between us and Greece, but along the whole ‘Balkan corridor’ and the European Union, because the exchange of data, security, and information is absent in the Union”, said President Ivanov.

He added that Tsipras discussed confidence-building measures between Macedonia and Greece, and the necessity of implementation.
