Presidents of Macedonia and Albania on Monday expressed their "mutual satisfaction" on the relations between the two countries.
Macedonian President Branko Crvenkovski and the visiting Albanian President Alfred Moisiu said they are pleased with the high degree of bilateral relations, the commitment to building amicable relations and comprehensive bilateral co-operation, and the commitment to continuing the contacts at all levels.
The interlocutors underscored the need to further boost the economic and cultural cooperation.
They also commended the progress the both countries have made thus far in terms of NATO membership efforts and the co-operation of the Adriatic Charter signatory-countries, which expect to get an invitation for NATO membership at the next Alliance's summit.
Crvenkovski and Moisiu shared the position that both Macedonia and Albania need to invest additional efforts to wrap up the reform. President Crvenkovski spelled out Macedonia's commitment to supporting Albania and shares its own experience on the road to Euro-Atlantic integration, says the official statement released shortly after the talks.
