According to PM Zaev’s press office, the two leaders discussed the agreement, noting that it has provided a model for successfully resolving open issues between both countries.
Prime Minister Zaev also expressed his belief that Greece will be one of the leading lobbyists and supporters of North Macedonia in their upcoming accession negotiations with the European Union.
Earlier that day, Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou also met with Zaev where, according to MIA, they agreed the Prespa Agreement had created an alliance and partnership between Greece and North Macedonia.
Sakellaropoulou also congratulated the Prime Minister on his re-election to the post.
The meetings came as the countries are set to sign a final agreement for greater economic cooperation and interconnected natural gas resources.
