Macedonia to open Kuwaiti embassy

SKOPJI: Macedonian Foreign Minister Antonio Milososki said here yesterday his government hoped that a Kuwaiti embassy could be opened soon, and bilateral diplomatic representation would be upgraded up to the ambassadorial level.
The foreign minister said Kuwait is held in high esteem by all Macedonian political forces, both ruling and opposition ones, and that his country looks forward to developing relations with Kuwait at the political, trade, economic and cultural levels.
He added that he was monitoring the political, economic and social developments in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member countries in general and Kuwait in particular, especially its democracy, which he lauded as a unique model in the Middle East region.
He pointed to a Macedonian move to promote relations with several Middle East nations, mainly Kuwait. The move involves the dispatching of parliamentary, governmental and union delegations to these countries to discuss ways and means of reinforcing economic, trade, cultural and investment ties with them, as well as economic conferences among Macedonian and Gulf, chiefly Kuwaiti, businessmen.
Macedonia hopes that it would bid for setting up infrastructure, road and harbor projects in the first three months of 2007, he added.
The Macedonian foreign minister welcomed any visit by Kuwaiti businessmen to Macedonia to see up close the business and investment opportunities available to them. -
