The Macedonian Government informed that Borisov and Dimitriev also discussed the prospects for NATO enlargement and for opening European Union accession talks for Macedonia, both of which were stalled on Greek objections. Dimitriev and Borisov also discussed the need to increase economic cooperation and tourism between the two neighboring countries, and to work together to mitigate the effects of the migrant and refugee crisis.
