Executive Order Discussed at Nikolovski-Byrnes Meeting

On Wednesday, the Deputy PM for Fighting Corruption, Sustainable Development, and Human Resources, Ljupco Nikolovski, held a meeting with US Ambassador Kate Marie Byrnes. They talked about the US President Joe Biden’s Executive Border. Nikolovski is glad that the Order focuses also on the fight against corruption as well, which, as it was said in the press-release, is one of North Macedonia’s top priorities. In that regard, he informed the Ambassador of the Government’s measures and activities against corruption, as well as of the realisation of the Plan for Fighting Corruption. The Ambassador underlined the importance of taking measures to fight corruption, which, as it was pointed out, is both in the interest of all citizens and important to the integration progress. Also, she reiterated her country’s support for North Macedonia’s Euro-Atlantic path.
