Osmani: Athens-Skopje flight best reflects warming relations

It is a privilege to be the first passenger on the renewed Athens-Skopje flight, which best reflects the warming relations between the neighboring countries at the level of strategic partnership. This flight will be beneficial in practice for the people but also for the business community, said Vice Premier for European Affairs Bujar Osmani on Thursday.

This is the first time that there is a direct air link between the two countries in more than 10 years.

Asked by reporters about his optimism regarding the agreement with Greece,  he said that it was based on the fact that the first vote took 10 days and, as he said, we used five days. Based on that, Osmani pointed out, and making some calculation for a possible optimistic variant if all maximum days are not used that, the assumption and optimistic variant is that it is possible to complete the process by the New Year.

We are entering the normal lines of implementation of the agreement and we expect that the support will be even greater, because the mental barrier to this agreement is violated and more and more citizens are accepting the agreement itself and the solution itself, emphasized Osmani.
