Zhovkva, adviser to North Macedonia president discuss security situation in eastern Ukraine.

Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Ihor Zhovkva held an online consultation with Goce Karajanov, Special Adviser to the President of North Macedonia for Foreign Policy.

According to the President’s Office, Zhovkva informed his interlocutor about the security situation in eastern Ukraine and in the temporarily occupied Crimea. He stressed that ceasefire violations are recorded almost every day, and there is still a large Russian military presence on the Ukrainian-Russian border.

Karajanov assured of the invariability of North Macedonia's support for the sovereignty and independence of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.

For his part, Zhovkva expressed gratitude to the Macedonian side for the solidarity position of North Macedonia within international and regional organizations, in particular, the traditional support for the resolutions initiated by Ukraine in the UN.

Zhovkva told Karajanov about the preparations for the Crimean Platform summit to be held in Kyiv on August 23, 2021, and expressed hope that North Macedonia will be represented at this event at a high political level.

The parties discussed the results of the NATO summit, which took place in Brussels on June 14. Zhovkva noted the importance of reaffirming by Allied leaders that Ukraine will become a NATO member and that the Membership Action Plan (MAP) is an integral part of this process.

Karajanov stressed that North Macedonia supports Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic integration.

During the conversation, special attention was paid to the steps of both countries in the context of counteracting the spread of COVID-19. The interlocutors stressed the importance of resuming tourist flows between Ukraine and North Macedonia, taking into account the epidemic situation and the pace of vaccination.
