Macedonian President Stevo Pendarovski met Monday evening in Paris with French President Emmanuel Macron. This is the first meeting of a Macedonian statesman with a representative of the French state leadership after France opposed Macedonia getting a date for starting negotiations with the EU.

Tonight, I had the honor of attending a dinner ahead of the Paris Peace Forum, at the invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron, along with heads of state and forum participants, to discuss the need for joint solutions to tackle global challenges, the President wrote on Facebook.
