NATO Secretary General Congratulates Political Progress in Macedonia
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday called the Macedonian President's decision to grant SDSM leader Zoran Zaev a mandate for government formation 'a step in the right direction.'
"I welcome President Ivanov’s decision to grant Mr. Zaev’s parliamentary majority a mandate to form a new government. This is a step in the right direction, and the right thing to do," the NATO head said in a statement. I encourage, he added, the swift formation of a new government, a timely confirmation vote in parliament and a constructive attitude by all parties. According to Stoltenberg, it is important the country can start to focus on its urgently needed reforms.
"I urge all those concerned to continue their efforts to advance the country’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations," his statement read.
