PRESIDENT OF THE ASSEMBLY OF THE REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA, Mr. TRAJKO VELJANOSKI MET THE PRESIDENT OF THE OSCE PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY, Mr. JOAO SOARES
During the meeting, the President of the Assembly, Mr. Trajko Veljanoski stressed that, being a full OSCE member, Macedonia fully respects and applies the basic principles and commitments of this international association. He expressed gratitude for the role the OSCE played in the overall process of transition of the Macedonian society and institutions. President Veljanoski once again reminded of the importance of the visa liberalisation for the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia, which they deserve on the basis of the accomplished reforms and progress in that area, including the recent well-conducted elections, positively assessed by the ODIHR.
