Address of the President Xhaferi at the 64th Annual Session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly
At the beginning of my address, I would like to express my appreciation to the President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, Mrs. Rasa Jukneviciene, for supporting the Republic of Macedonia on its path towards the NATO Alliance, and to NATO for their engagement through delivering the invitation for membership of the Republic of Macedonia in NATO a few months ago. Particularly pleasing was the fact that in her work program, among other things, the policy of partnership and open doors was listed as a priority, namely, the membership of the Western Balkans states, Ukraine and Georgia in NATO. With your permission, I will make a small retrospective on our presence in the NATO Alliance.

Address of the President Xhaferi at the Young Political Leaders Conference on topic "Impetus of political dialogue and consensus"
I consider that the political dialogue and reaching a consensus are at the top of the values and standards which define the democratic environment and political culture of a society. At the same time, the extent to which these values and standards are applied is the basic measure of how democratic a government rules. The proper place or arena for political dialogue and reaching consensus is the Assembly itself.

ADDRESS OF THE PRESIDENT XHAFERI ON THE OCCASION OF 8th OF SEPTEMBER
8th of September, together with the two Ilindens, is the tripod the Republic of Macedonia is founded and built on. If the generations of Ilinden 1903 and Ilinden 1944 fought bravely, distinctively and followed their vision, many of whom gave their lives; the citizens on 8th September 1991, also followed their vision and bravely voted - the majority translated this referendum decision into constitutional and legal framework providing the Republic of Macedonia to be recognized as sovereign and independent identity by the international community. Thus allow me today, on my personal behalf and on behalf of all attendees and I am convinced that I speak on behalf of all citizens, to express appreciation to the Members of the firs composition of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia.
