At a joint press conference with the host, Macedonian Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov, Cerar said that he was aware that the referendum on the agreement with Greece due to the insufficient participation was not valid, but Slovenia believes that the results showed a convincing message that the political process of integration in the EU and NATO should continue.

He assured that Slovenia is a strong advocate of Macedonia on its path to the EU and NATO, and supports the European Commission’s assessment that Macedonia already fulfills the conditions for opening negotiations. He called on Macedonia to continue reform processes and provide assistance to Slovenia.” (translated from RTSlovo)
