Macedonian PM Gruevski meets Croatian President Josipovic

Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and visiting Croatian President Ivo Josipovic expressed satisfaction Monday with Skopje-Zagreb bilateral relations and cooperation.

Gruevski extended gratitude for Croatia's continuous support of Macedonia's efforts for swift NATO and EU membership.

Croatian experience with the EU accession talks is rather significant for Macedonia, which expects same methodology of membership negotiations and thus great assistance from Croatia, Gruevski said.

Despite Greece's obstructions, Macedonian Government has been working hard on the society's modernization and meeting the EU membership standards, Gruevski said, reaffirming his Cabinet commitment to finding mutually acceptable solution to the name row imposed by Greece within the UN-sponsored process.

Gruevski and Josipovic also expressed satisfaction with the economic cooperation between the two countries, saying that there is a room for further bolstering.

They agreed that Macedonian-Croatian friendship should keep developing, considering their mutual commitment to the region's stability, prosperity and EU, NATO integration. Source; Governement
