FM Dimitrov underlined: “We didn’t receive the anticipated decision in October, but despite the complex situation in the EU itself, friendly Austria continues its active engagement in favour of valorising what North Macedonia has achieved and I believe that through joint efforts we will succeed in getting the well-deserved decision to start accession talks very soon, gradually taking our place within the European family”.

At the event organised by the Faculty of Philosophy in Skopje, the Embassy also promoted a book on the beginnings of Austrian diplomacy in the country, and aside from FM Nikola Dimitrov, the Austrian Ambassador Georg Woutsas and the rector of Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, Nikola Jankulovski also delivered their remarks before the representatives of the diplomatic corps and the academic community.
