North Macedonia’s delegation has continued its activities in New York. In a discussion with Columbia University students, PM Dimitar Kovacevski talked about Open Balkan, describing the initiative as organic and adding it was an economic alliance of North Macedonia, Serbia, and Albania, built on European principles. Also, he said he had always invited Kosovo because he had learned the conflict was not the way and that a diplomatic solution had to be found to the challenge between Belgrade and Pristina. Answering questions from students, the PM said he was certain that North Macedonia could become a full-fledged EU member by 2030. “This will be great for the region,” he noted. According to him, the right policies to advance democracy, to make economic and social progress speed up the EU integrations. In addition, together with his wife, Elena Kovacevska, Kovacevski attended a reception organised by US President Joe Biden for heads of state and government. When it comes to the activities of Bujar Osmani, the Foreign Minister held a meeting on the sidelines of the General Assembly with Greek counterpart Nikos Dendias. They talked about the Skopje-Athens bilateral relations, North Macedonia’s EU road, the Ukraine situation, and other topics. Later on Thursday, PM Kovacevski also had a meeting with UN Secretary General António Guterres, thanking him for all UN engagements in the country in all fields.
