Basescu due in Macedonia soon

Romanian President Traian Basescu is due to pay a working visit to Macedonia in the second half of April, says an official announcement released today.

Basescu will arrive in Macedonia on 19 April, in the eve of the Summit of SEE Head of States scheduled to kick off the following day in Ohrid.

The visit of the Romanian President will come upon invitation of the Macedonian President Branko Crvenkovski, who paid a visit to Bucharest in February 2006.

The two Presidents will discuss Macedonian integration in Euro-Atlantic structures and the Romanian support to the process, the economic cooperation, and the current situation in the region, with special emphasis on Kosovo.

The visit of the Romanian President gains additional importance given the fact the Bucharest is very likely to host the NATO Summit in 2008, from which Macedonia expects to receive a membership invitation, says the announcement of the Macedonian President's Cabinet.
