Macedonian Prime Minister Dimitar Kovachevski said Wednesday he would consult the two ministers who Macedonian President Stevo Pendarovski has talked to over the proposal for extension of the deadline for replacement of the citizens’ personal documents, which expires on February 12, in accordance with the Prespa Agreement.
Due to the pressing deadline and long queues at the Ministry of Interior document issuance points, President Pendarovski said yesterday he has put forward a proposal to two ministers for a swift intervention in the laws on IDs and passports over extension of the deadline by September or October, while notifying Greece that the country does not intend to shun away from the obligations undertaken with the Prespa Agreement.
“I will consult the two ministers that the President talked to. I find all solution-oriented proposals good ones. I believe the President can also talk to his Greek counterpart on this issue. We will discuss the options related to this issue at a Government session,” PM Kovachevski told the media.
