WASHINGTON – The United States of America has congratulated Macedonia and Bulgaria on the signing of the Treaty of good neighbourliness and friendship, said the US Department of State’s press release.

“This important, forward-looking agreement recognizes the already strong ties between the two countries and opens the door to even closer cooperation going forward in areas as diverse as infrastructure and culture. The signing of this Treaty will contribute to political stability and economic development in the wider region and it will offer an encouraging example of how differences between neighbours can be resolved peacefully,” it was written in the press release.

The signing of the Treaty was greeted yesterday by the European Union.
