The President of the Republic of Kosovo Vjosa Osmani, at the commencement of her official visit to North Macedonia, was received with high state and military honours by President Stevo Pendarovski.

Both presidents reconfirmed the excellent relations between Kosovo and North Macedonia. President Osmani emphasized that the relations with North Macedonia are built on common democratic values and strengthened by the common goal of the Euro-Atlantic future of our countries.

“We are two neighbouring countries and our goal is the common Euro-Atlantic future. In this endeavour, our relations are a model of operation in the Western Balkans. Our commitment to good neighbourly relations, peace and stability is also in function of stability in the region and beyond. North Macedonia is Kosovo’s reliable partner and we highly appreciate the support to date and count on continued support in our efforts for membership in international organizations”, stated President Osmani

Speaking in regard of inter-neighbourly relations, President Osmani pointed out that the ties between the two countries become even stronger with the contribution of the Albanians of North Macedonia. She said that Albanians had a key role in the formation and state-building of North Macedonia, while today they are key contributors to its European perspective.

In this context, President Osmani emphasized that the faster completion of the Bllacë-Shkup highway will provide greater opportunities for the movement of citizens of both countries and mutual exchange. The necessity to open additional border points was also mentioned at the meeting, to the benefit of further facilitating the movement to and from both countries.

Speaking in reference to current political developments and those in the field of security, President Osmani added that Kosovo continues to coordinate with its allies and that it remains committed to peace and stability. President Osmani and President Pendarovski also discussed the intensification of cooperation in other areas of mutual interest.
