The American Embassy has welcomed the assigning of the mandate for forming a government, marking it as a significant step towards the solution of the crisis.

It is a great thing for Macedonia and the people of Macedonia that the government formation process is moving on to the next phase and that we are in sight of seeing a new government formed. It is also important to note that President Ivanov and the leaders of the majority coalition parties found a way to collaborate in a constructive way to get to this positive place for the people of Macedonia – said Micaela Schweitzer-Bluhm, the Deputy-Ambassador and acting Ambassador of U.S.

She stressed that they will cooperate with the new government that they expect to be formed soon.

“There is much work to be done for Macedonia to move forward on urgent reforms and to advance on its path into the Euro-Atlantic community. The United States remains a friend and partner of Macedonia, and we look forward to working with the new government to support those reforms and that progress”, said Schweitzer-Bluhm
