PM Zoran Zaev held a working meeting on Wednesday with Greek counterpart Kyriakos Mitsotakis in Athens. Zaev said that Athens and Skopje, with the Prespa deal, had created a model to successfully resolve open issues between neighbours. The two PMs described the meeting as significant and additional contribution in terms of advancing bilateral relations. The Macedonian PM also stated that with the established partnership, founded on trust and friendship, the Skopje-Athens relations had transformed into an alliance, confirmed also by the former’s NATO membership. Greece remains a strong lobbyist and supporter of its northern neighbour in the upcoming EU membership negotiations process, it was said in the Macedonian Government’s press-release. Zaev’s activities also included a meeting with Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou and participation in the conference of The Economist.
