Defence Minister Radmila Sekerinska was awarded with a recognition for her leadership and vision during her mandate as Defence Minister by the Association of Defence Attachés. The recognition was officially handed to Sekerinska by the President of the Association of Defence Attachés, Defence Attaché at the US Embassy in Skopje Peter Rowell. “We faced rather difficult challenges over the past year, but the hard work really paid off. There is no greater satisfaction for me to make a significant contribution for a better life of the citizens, of the state. In the past 4 years we managed to complete all our assignments, and the accession of our country in NATO was clear proof that hard work can bring very good results. Our partners and allies provided us strength when we were losing it. You provided us with your best support and advice, and we are very grateful for that,” Sekerinska said.
