He noted that Austria’s interest in Macedonia will continue to be a strong partner and he hoped that the country will implement the necessary reforms and will continue on its path towards European integration.

His host, Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Macedonia, Nikola Poposki emphasized that the greatest help that Macedonia can receive from the European Union is to let the will of the people be expressed through seats in parliament, and to let them decide which path the country will take.
