The United States congratulates President-elect Stevo Pendarovski on his victory in North Macedonia’s presidential elections. We commend the citizens of North Macedonia who exercised their right to vote. The elections were peaceful and competitive, and the outcome represented the will of the people. We welcome the OSCE’s preliminary report on the elections.
The United States is a strong partner of North Macedonia. We look forward to working with President-elect Pendarovski, the government, and all political parties as North Macedonia prepares to become the 30th member of the NATO Alliance and advances its future in the EU./ibna
