SKOPJE (KosovaLive)- Top political and international officials met at the U.S. embassy Thursday night, including the leader of the Party for Democratic Prosperity (PDP), Imer Imeri, U.S. ambassador Mike Einik, French ambassador Jean Francois Terral, German ambassador Verner Burchardt, and British ambassador Mark Dickinson, who is also the United Nations official representative.
After this meeting, Imer Imeri, the PDP leader declared: "Sometimes there is confusion among general opinion in Macedonia, as if we are contributing to the war, even though we have similar opinions as the International Community on how to establish peace. By all means we are working for peace and we are getting there."
"The government was encouraging us to contact the NLA and to convince them to lay down their weapons, and we achieved that" Imeri said about a joint communiqué he issued with the leader of the Democratic Party of Albanians Arben Xhaferi, and the NLA political leader, Ali Ahmeti. (ar)
