The Macedonian President stressed that the continued visits at the political level additionally confirm the excellent relations between the two countries and thanked for the excellent cooperation between the two countries during the migrant crisis in 2015 and the presence of Slovenian police on our border. President Ivanov added that in the coming period, the efforts should focus on intensification and increase of the economic cooperation and trade through encouragement of joint investments.

Congratulation message of President Ivanov on the occasion of the Day of the Macedonian Revolutionary Struggle
Tuesday, 23 October 2018 00:00

The President of the Republic of Macedonia, Dr. Gjorge Ivanov, sent a congratulation message to the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia on the occasion of the celebration of the national holiday October 23rd - the Day of the Macedonian Revolutionary Struggle.

Respected citizens of the Republic of Macedonia,

The highest goal of one nation is to create its own state. Only those nations that have created their own state have attained freedom by becoming self-sufficient. October 23rd, 1893, is a key moment in the Macedonian revolutionary struggle for achieving that highest goal. Exactly 125 years ago, several brave Macedonians formed the Macedonian Revolutionary Committee, which gave the people hope that, by their own strength, they can stand on their own. Innumerable Macedonian patriots have laid their lives down for the realization of this ideal.

Today, their dream of a free and independent Macedonia is a reality. But freedom is not conquered once and for all, but every day and constantly. Therefore, our generation's obligation is not to allow our free and independent state of the Republic of Macedonia to be disfigured.

In almost all the decisive moments of our history, the people have always brought a wise decision. It was the same this time again. In the referendum held on September 30th, the people, by not voting, clearly voiced their voices against hasty, imposed and harmful solutions adopted without a previously reached national consensus. In the referendum, the people expressed their sovereign will and unequivocally rejected the Prespa Agreement. The Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia had to take this into consideration, but the majority of the deputies acted contrary to the will of the people.

It takes courage to persevere in exercising the right to self-determination and in preserving the sovereignty and independence of the state. Courage that enabled the Macedonian revolutionaries and fighters to realize their dream.

People always celebrate the brave and history despises the dreadful and corrupt. Without respect for the past, without own identity and self-awareness, there is no prosperous present, nor will there be a better future. Each generation has its own struggle and aspiration. Our aspiration is towards a better and more dignified life here, in the Republic of Macedonia.

Therefore, let us not lose hope and love for the Republic of Macedonia, because only as a sovereign and independent state it will be a protector of our freedom and our human dignity.

May we celebrate the Day of the Macedonian Revolutionary Struggle for many years!

Long live the Republic of Macedonia!

Dr. Gjorge Ivanov

Presentation of the credentials of the newly appointed Ambassador of the Republic of Poland
Thursday, 18 October 2018 13:26

The President of the Republic of Macedonia, Dr. Gjorge Ivanov, received today the letters f credence of H.E. Mr. Wojciech Jerzy Tycinski, newly appointed Ambassador of the Republic of Poland to the Republic of Macedonia.

At the ceremony of presenting the credentials, President Ivanov stressed that the Macedonian-Polish relations are characterized by sincere friendship, mutual respect, continuous political dialogue and significant dynamics in cooperation in several areas of mutual interest.

President Ivanov said that the support and assistance from the Republic of Poland for realization of our set strategic goals, membership in NATO and the European Union is of particular importance to our country.

"As President of the Republic of Macedonia I have absolutely no dilemma that the place of the Republic of Macedonia is in the European Union and NATO. But we should join these organizations with our human dignity, without blackmails, pressure and double standards. The sovereign will of the Macedonian citizens in the referendum should be respected. Therefore, after the referendum, I hope that the process for Macedonia's accession to NATO and the European Union will continue", President Ivanov said.

In that regard, President Ivanov asked for support from the Republic of Poland for unblocking the process of membership of the Republic of Macedonia in NATO and the European Union, without violating the right to self-determination.
"I sincerely expect and hope that the Republic of Poland will take into account our arguments, our achievements and that the support in the realization of our goals will continue in the coming, extremely important period. The European perspective is the best guarantee for prosperity and stability in the Balkans", the Macedonian President said.

Ambassador Tycinski stressed that his country attaches great importance to the promotion of bilateral relations and the strengthening of friendly relations between the two friendly nations. Moreover, Ambassador Tycinski emphasized the importance of the values that bring closer the two nations, and that one more thing should be added, which is the compatibility of the common interests as partners in the international relations.

"As a country that has played an important role in the overthrow of the communist system in our part of Europe, we believe that every country deserves our support for its ambitions to shape its fate in accordance with the will of the nation and the principles of the democratic world", Ambassador Tycinski said.

As Ambassador Tycinski pointed out, the acceptance of such a political philosophy by Poland also results from the assumption that free, democratic, development and good cooperation with Macedonia is an important goal not only for Macedonians, but for the entire Balkan region and Europe as whole and that Europe cannot be stable if all European countries do not remain stable.

President Ivanov congratulated the newly appointed ambassador for his post and wished him success in carrying out the responsible diplomatic duty.
