The US Embassy in Skopje announced that Hoyt Yee will travel to Macedonia on May 1, 2017 to engage political leaders on the status of government formation, bilateral relations, and reforms needed for Euro-Atlantic integration.

“I sincerely hope that the Macedonian President will allow MPs who have expressed the wish and the parties they represent to form a government as soon as possible because Macedonia needs a government that will continue and finish the processes which they started within the pre-accession process of the European Union”, said Yee from Zagreb.

Hoyt Brian Yee will not be meeting with the president Gjorge Ivanov, confirmed the president’s cabinet for Meta.

“The cabinet of the President of Republic of Macedonia was sent a request for a meeting with the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Hoyt Brian Yee, but due to previously set obligations, the President of Republic of Macedonia Gjorge Ivanov has no time for having a meeting”, said the cabinet.
