Macedonia is writing history, not only a national one but also European. The name agreement with Greece is a unique chance for opening of EU and NATO doors. I would like to see our Macedonian friends in the group united in the two associations as soon as possible, said Michael Roth, Minister of State for Europe at the Federal Foreign Office, who is paying a visit to Macedonia on Friday. “I would like to encourage people in your beautiful country to embrace this historic opportunity. If you support the agreement, it will represent a significant sign that Macedonians are strongly committed to democracy, rule of law, judiciary independence. They will become a crucial part of a united Europe. We must resume our cooperation, friendship and obligations. I am an optimist,” Roth told reporters in Ohrid.
