The NATO membership invitation for Macedonia is very important for you, but it is also important for us. We support the country’s EU integration process, which in fact requires the name referendum in late September to be successful, Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă told a news conference in Skopje alongside her Macedonian counterpart Zoran Zaev. “My visit here several months before Romania is to take over the EU presidency in early 2019 is an expression of support for Macedonia’s EU bid. Romania will try to help you with technicalities. I wish for the referendum to be successful and I hope that the citizens here in Macedonia will understand the importance of it,” PM Dăncilă noted. Romania is a great friend of Macedonia, Premier Zaev said thanking the country for its principled support to the reform process and the Euro-Atlantic integration bid.
