Macedonia doesn't rush things with Kosovo

Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski reiterated government's stance today that Macedonia will be careful in bringing decisions after declaration of Kosovo's independence.

Gruevski refused to give a concrete answer on whether will Macedonia recognize the independence of Kosovo, pointing out that the national and state interests will be taken into consideration.

"Kosovo is taking steps towards implementation of the Ahtisaari's plan. We are following closely the situation there as well as in Serbia. Macedonia has ethnically mixed population and we will make all future decision in line with the state and national interests," Gruevski said in Skopje today.
