“We are expecting to work together with the Macedonian government as soon as it is formed on te progress in the Euro-Atlantic integration through the implementation of the reforms that were determined with the Przino agreement, especially regarding the rule of law” said the US Embassy in Macedonia after the deadline of 20 days had expired, during which VMRO-DPMNE’s leader, Nikola Gruevski, to whom a mandate was given, didn’t manage to assemble a government coalition.

The US Embassy also stressed that it remains a partner of Macedonia.
