Tsipras says Greece ready to cooperate closely with Macedonia's new government

Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has sent a note to Macedonian Premier Zoran Zaev to congratulate him on assuming office as the country's new Prime Minister, the government says Thursday in a press release.

"On the occasion of assuming office as prime minister, I offer congratulations wishing you success. The Republic of Greece remains committed to promoting stability, security and cooperation in Southeastern Europe. This is the foundation on which my government is prepared to closely cooperate with your government in order to strengthen our bilateral cooperation and relations, also through the ongoing confidence-building measures," reads the note.

PM Tsipras says he expects the new government to demonstrate political determination to focus on promoting a positive agenda in bilateral relations.

"I am confident that your government will demonstrate political determination to work on promoting a positive agenda for our bilateral ties, leaving behind, once and for all, anachronisms of the past and focusing on the future of our countries and the region. I look forward to cooperating closely with you," Tsipras tells PM Zaev.
