Skopje, 26 July 2019 (MIA) – VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski elaborated on his party’s proposed law for the Public Prosecution during his meeting with Ambassador Philip T. Reeker, Acting Assistant Secretary of European and Eurasian Affairs.
Mickoski, according to VMRO-DPMNE’s press release, “also highlighted the importance of an uncompromising fight against any kind of corruption and crime.”
Latest political developments and reform processes were discussed at the meeting, the release reads.
Mickoski reaffirmed VMRO-DPMNE’s commitment to cooperation and development of Macedonian-American relations, the release adds.
Following the meeting, Ambassador Reeker told the press he had reiterated some points he had made earlier in the day at a news conference.
“I hope we see a positive movement when it comes to the Law on the SPO and PPO because that’s very important for North Macedonia’s EU perspective,” Reeker said.
“The United States has continued to strenuously support North Macedonia in the opening of negotiations for membership in the EU, and we will continue to support Macedonia in that regard.
“But it’s up to the forces in this country to do the right thing, not play games, move forward constructively together for the future of the country.”
Earlier on Friday, Reeker held meetings with Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov, and DUI leader Ali Ahmeti. /mr
