Ljubljana, 6.6.2012 | press release
The President of the Republic of Slovenia, Dr Danilo Türk, received Trajko Veljanoski, the President of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia, who thanked the Slovenian President for his consistent and principled support for the Republic of Macedonia during its efforts to join Euro-Atlantic organisations and for the right solution to the dispute over the country’s constitutional name.
President Türk ensured his guest that Slovenian support for Macedonian efforts to join Euro-Atlantic organisations is principled and consistent, adding that the Republic of Slovenia will express its support in all forums. He also stressed that bilateral economic relations have to be developed more intensively and, in particular, all the problems of Slovenian investors in the Republic of Macedonia have to be addressed promptly.
The President also mentioned that the very close relations between Slovenian and Macedonian parliaments could be further improved by a more comprehensive exchange of opinions on various legislative questions which are on the agendas of both parliaments. Europe is in the process of changing and reforming, and from this point of view, the exchange of experience is useful for both countries, added President Türk.
