Russia, Macedonia to jointly secure Balkan stabilization

Russia considers Macedonia its key partner in the mission of stabilizing the Balkans, Russia’s foreign chief Sergei Lavrov said at a meeting with his Macedonian counterpart, Nikola Poposki, who arrived in Moscow for a round of talks.

“We hope that, apart from talks on bilateral and international agendas, you’ll also have some time for a tour around the capital,” Mr. Lavrov said greeting Nikola Poposki.

It’s the first Russian visit for the Macedonian foreign minister. “We have a history of good relationships, there are no unsolved issues,” Sergei Lavrov said. “There is considerable potential, and we should focus our efforts to help its realization,” he added.

The Russian foreign chief also underscored the importance of stronger ties with Macedonia.
