FM Dimitrov stated that "in this past period, North Macedonia has demonstrated its capacity to export stability as well as good news in regional and European context - through strong political commitment, leadership and courage - to overcome open issues with neighbours, but also to boldly implement the domestic reform agenda towards securing a better tomorrow for our citizens.   The Strategy for one society and inter-culturalism is a key step in that direction.  The promotion of the cohesiveness of our society, a community that is equally open and accessible to all stakeholders is certainly one of the key indicators of the successful Macedonian story we are trying to build”.
