Defense Minister Radmila Sekerinska met Friday with European Union Ambassador Samuel Zbogar, thanking the EU for its engagement and continual support during the political crisis in Macedonia.
"Despite the challenges we faced in the recent period, it is encouraging to see the country move forward. We are in a situation that everything we do in the EU field will help us in the NATO integration process", said Minister Sekerinska.
Zbogar saluted the visible optimism following the formation of the new government, highlighting that the European defense issue is becoming an increasingly important topic in the EU.
The EU ambassador stressed the Macedonian Army role in the migrant crisis management, hoping the Parliament will pass a decision over extension of the army's mandate at the southern border, the Defense Ministry said in a press release.
