The United States warmly welcomes the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Macedonia, as well as the successful completion of the demarcation of their shared border. We commend the leadership of both countries for their resolve in taking a significant step toward Euro-Atlantic integration by establishing good neighborly relations and enhancing regional stability. We also commend the International Civilian Office for its key mediation role in the completion of border demarcation, an important element of the Ahtisaari Plan.
