  • PDF

After the ratification of border settlement by both countries' parliaments, the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Kosovo, Skender Hyseni, and his FYR of Macedonia counterpart, Antonio Milososki, late yesterday evening signed a communique on the establishment of diplomatic relations at the ambassadorial level, effective immediately.

"Convinced that establishment of the diplomatic relations between our countries will develop  our cooperation and mutual understanding and interests of peace and security in the region," was the statement of both foreign ministers.

Both countries are expected open embassies shortly and accredit  ambassadors.

The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia recognized Kosovo as independent and sovereign country last year.
