IMG_6570Minister Shekerinska had a meeting with the Minister of State for Europe and the Americas Sir Alan Duncan in the Foreign Affairs and Commonwealth Office.

At the meeting with the Minister, who is a good connoisseur of the situation in Macedonia, our Minister expressed her gratitude for the continued British support in the implementation of the reform Euro-Atlantic processes. “We are working on substantial internal reforms, as well as on improving the relations with our neighbours. These are complex processes that require political will, time, and constant support from our allies” our Minister stated.

Minister Duncan stressed that the UK continues to support the Republic of Macedonia in its integration into NATO and the European Union, pointing out that the Western Balkans Summit to be held in 2018 in the United Kingdom is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Macedonia’s progress in many areas. He added that he was aware that all changes cannot happen at once, but it is important to have continuous and sustainable progress.
