US Embassy to Skopja has demanded from political parties in FYROM to intensify political dialogue in order to address the challenges that the country faces.

“The leaders of the four political parties have agreed on the importance of strengthening the institutions of the country. They have also confirmed their commitment for the process and principles of Euro-Atlantic integration, for the strengthening of ethnic relations and the improvement of relations between neighboring countries. This path requires important reforms for the improvement of the democratic environment in Macedonia”, reads the statement of the US Embassy.

The statement further says that this dialogue and the institutional reforms with the brokerage of the EU and USA will offer a better political climate.

“This will be no easy journey. There’s still a lot of work which will require cooperation between political leaders in Macedonia, in the best interest of the country”, reads the statement of the US Embassy.

Meanwhile, the European Commission has praised the agreement between the four political parties in FYROM, reached two days ago with the brokerage of European Enlargement Commissioner, Johannes Hahn.  /ibna/
