Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia – Political situation (18 May 2017)


France welcomes the decision by the president of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Gjorge Ivanov, to entrust Zoran Zaev, the leader of the Social Democratic Union of Macedonia, with forming a government yesterday.

This provides an important opportunity for the FYROM to resolve the political crisis.

We hope that the government will be formed in the near future.

France calls on all political forces represented in Parliament to establish a constructive dialogue within the institutions in order to allow the future authorities to swiftly implement the urgently needed reforms to ensure the country’s lasting stability and progress toward European rapprochement.
