Skopje. It seems that much of time will pass before Macedonia sends ambassadors to other countries. There is no initiative to organize a meeting with President Branko Crvenkovski and PM Nikola Gruevski to appoint ambassadors on the posts of those whose term of office has expired, Macedonian A1 TV reported.
Government’s attempt to send a representative in Brussels proves the lack of dialogue between the president and the prime minister, at a time when Macedonia must be very active in diplomatic aspect, the media says.
“In a year, when having diplomatic relations with members of the EU and NATO is highly important, we stand last in this sphere. The level of diplomatic relations is decreasing, as we don’t have ambassadors in this centers”, President Crvenkovski said in Berovo.
The government did not wish to comment on this criticism. The terms of office of most of the ambassadors will expire in September, or have already expired - however, under the decision of Minister of Foreign Affairs Antonio Milososki the terms of offices will be prolonged.
