Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili has paid her first official visit to North Macedonia earlier today. 

North Macedonian President Stevo Pendarovski has tweeted:

Now Zurabishvili and Pendarovski are holding a face-to-face meeting. 

The presidents are scheduled to sign a visa liberalisation agreement between the two countries and a memorandum of cooperation in culture following the meeting. 

North Macedonia is a valuable partner as the newest, 30th member of NATO. With this visit, Georgia is beginning a new phase in the relations with the country,” the president’s press office has reported. 

Zurabishvili will also meet with the chair of the North Macedonian parliament Talat Xhaferi and Deputy PM Artan Grubi.

The president’s press office said that both Georgia and North Macedonia are also seeking to become the EU members and ‘have a lot to exchange in terms of experience for this.”
