Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey, Mevlut Chavushoglu, who

traditionally close friendly relations between the two countries are a true
example of building a strategic partnership, and in that sense, I can say with
pleasure that with the ratification of the Protocol for membership of North
Macedonia in NATO by the Grand National Assembly, Turkey proved the long-standing
support to our country on its path to the European and Euro-Atlantic
integration", Osmani stressed.
the meeting, the two interlocutors discussed the bilateral cooperation and the
possibilities for its deepening in the future, within the long-standing
strategic partnership, and the topics related to European integration and the
perspectives of the country in the forthcoming period were opened, in
anticipation of the start of the negotiations in October. Osmani and
Chavushoglu exchanged views on the situation in the region, pointing out that
the success in overcoming open issues of North Macedonia with its neighbours is
a bright example on the Balkans, which should be a motive and incentive for the
other Balkan countries.
