BRUSSELS – NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in a statement Wednesday that he welcomes Macedonian President Ivanov’s decision to grant Mr. Zaev’s parliamentary majority a mandate to form a new government.

“This is a step in the right direction, and the right thing to do.  I encourage the swift formation of a new government, a timely confirmation vote in parliament and a constructive attitude by all parties.  It is important the country can start to focus on its urgently needed reforms.  I urge all those concerned to continue their efforts to advance the country’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations,” statement reads.
