US hail peaceful transition of power

United States of America have hailed the peaceful transition of power in Macedonia, saying that "it sends a positive signal in the region regarding the progress the democratic institutions in Macedonia have made since the 1991 declaration of independence".

This is stated in the press statement, released by the US Embassy in Skopje.

"We wish the Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and his Cabinet a successful launch of the ambitious government's programme. We will support the Government in efforts to step up the economic prosperity, strengthening of the rule of law, full implementation of the 2001 Ohrid Agreement, as well as in pursuing the remaining reforms aimed at further progress of the Republic of Macedonia toward full integration in the Euro-Atlantic structures", the announcement adds.
