Minister Dimitrov thanked for the exceptional contribution of Ambassador Stefansson in developing the Macedonian-Swedish friendship for which Minister Dimitrov presented him with a certificate of appreciation for his prolific engagement and genuine, open and constructive support for the democratic transformation and the European aspirations of our country.

FM Dimitrov: “Your wisdom, well-intentioned and friendly advice, as well as the professional approach to work have left a strong mark on our society as well as on the diplomatic corps as a doyenne. I am particularly pleased that, among other thing, during your mandate the exchange of high-level visits was intensified, and the Declaration of Cooperation between our two countries was adopted in 2017. The Kingdom of Sweden continues to serve as our model and inspiration in taking reform steps in the spirit of European values and I am confident that your successor will continue to nurture the positive trend of bilateral relations with the same dynamics.”
