Foreign Ministers of Serbia and Macedonia Ivan Mrkić and Nikola Poposki agreed on Friday in Belgrade that the two countries “share the same EU prospects.”
They announced closer cooperation in the future.
“Our relations are exceptionally good and we are determined to strengthen them, and the best proof of this are the two governments’ plans for future joint activities,” Mrkić told a joint press conference.
Mrkić noted that Belgrade and Skopje organized the first joint sitting of the two governments last year, while a new meeting is planned to take place in the second half of 2014.
An agreement was made with the Macedonian side to prepare a joint consultation program, said Mrkić.
The topics discussed in the meeting included the situation in the region and the relations with the European Union, considering that both countries are vying for a full EU membership, said Mrkić.
