Skopje. Macedonia is not considering to pull out its troops from Iraq for the time being, spokesman for the Macedonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spresa Jusufi has told the Macedonian Vreme daily. In her words the Foreign Ministry is constantly observing the situation in Iraq and analyses the situation in this country in the frames of its regular tasks.
High-standing diplomats had told the Vreme daily on Friday that Macedonia might start Iraq pullout before the US authorities start pulling out their contingent.
Former Minister of Foreign Affairs Alexandar Dimitrov has stated in his turn that Macedonia had made a rash move sending its troops to the Freedom for Iraq mission since there has been no positive result from this regarding Macedonia’s NATO aspirations.
