Greek Foreign Minister Giorgos Katrougalos will visit Skopje on Sunday to attend the swearing-in ceremony of North Macedonia's new President, Stevo Pendarovski.
Pendarovski, the candidate backed by the country's center-left government, won the presidency in a runoff election with a conservative rival in early May.
The Prespes name deal signed between Athens and Skopje should serve as a blueprint for resolving many bilateral differences in the Western Balkans, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Matthew Palmer was quoted on Friday by the Athens-Macedonia News Agency as telling Radio Free Europe.
Stevo Pendarovski won the presidential elections in northern Macedonia. The ruling coalition candidate received 51.66% of the votes, reported NOVA TV.
Pendarovski faced a run-off against Gordana Silyanovska-Davkova, the opposition VMRO-DPMNE.
Pendarovski was elected by the ruling party of Prime Minister Zoran Zaev Social Democratic Union (SDSM).
