Ministers Dimitrov and Ademi present two projects for Prespa and the Prespa region
The Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikola Dimitrov and the Miniser in charge of Diaspora and Chairman of the working group for support of the Prespa region, Edmond Ademi, today presented the project EU for Prespa, and the Prespa Forum for Dialogue.
FM Nikola Dimitrov underscored that the Final Agreement (Prespa Agreement) was broadly welcomed and recognized by the international community and the democratic world, and that what seemed impossible and unresolvable for almost three decades, can be overcome.
“The European Commission on the day of its signature published: Skopje and Athens make us Europeans proud of the ability to find a win-win solution through diplomacy and dialogue for the name issue that has lingered for three decades. This is an inspiration to all of us”.
Three decades of differences between the two neighbours were bridged by expressing strong will to strengthen mutual trust, build a friendship, but also as the key driver in the process of development of a strategic partnership and alliance within NATO and the European Union. The differences regarding the name and the scope of its use have been resolved. The use of our country’s codes has also been resolved. In addition to courage and vision on both sides, the compromise was possible also by confirming the key identity references, including our Macedonian language”, Dimitrov said.
The initiative of the new Government to adopt a formal decision for the establishment of a Prespa Forum for Dialogue, which would be a kind of international forum for dialogue, cooperation and resolving international issues that through the prism of the historic success of the Prespa Agreement would serve as inspiration to future generations in overcoming differences and open issues”, Minister Dimitrov concluded.
The Prespa Forum for Dialogue is planned to be located in the multimedia centre which will be built as part of EU for Prespa project. The visual appearance of the centre was presented by architect Ivana Belcheva.
