Macedonian Minister of Defence to visit Lithuania


On 10-11 February Minister of Defence of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Vlado Buchovski, is coming with an official visit to Lithuania.


At his meeting with Minister Buchovski, National Defence Minister Linas Linkevičius will focus on prospects of possible co-operation with Macedonia and will present Lithuania's experience in its bid to join NATO.


The Baltic co-operation model and joint projects of the three states will also be presented to the Macedonian Minister of Defence.


During his visit to Lithuania, Mr V. Buchovski will have meetings with Commander of the Lithuanian Armed Forces, Major General Jonas Krokaitis, Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs, Justas Paleckis. He will also visit the Seimas (Parliament) of the Republic of Lithuania, where he is scheduled to meet with Chairman of the National Security and Defence Committee Alvydas Sadeckas and other MPs.


On 15 November 1995 Macedonia became the 27th state to join NATO initiative known as Partnership for Peace. At the Alliance's Prague Summit in November 2002, NATO Secretary General George Robertson praised an initiative introduced by leadership of Albania, Croatia and Macedonia to work together in seeking NATO membership.
