Transcript of FM Dimitrov’s Press Conference after meeting UN Mediator Matthew Nimetz
(statement and answers to questions – FM Dimitrov)
1 February 2018, MoFA


Distinguished media representatives, distinguished citizens,

It is my honour to close the cycle of press-conferences regarding the first few months of the mandate of this Government in view of the numerous activities of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It is quite evident that the new leadership at the MFA and the policy it leads has achieved a turning point in Macedonian foreign policy. We don’t want a policy which, in the words of Füle, leads to a dead end; we don’t want an EC report deeming Macedonia to be a captured state, an internationally isolated, friendless, self-doubting and scared state suffering from numerous complexes. Our policy is quite the opposite - we strengthen or renew friendships and establish new ones. We are restoring the image of Macedonia as a country that will work on improving itself. We want Macedonia to be a modern state which will draw attention with good news, a country with an image and the essence of a European democracy, a country that’s an attractive place to live and work – a country of happy citizens.
