London, England (12th September, 2019) – In a warm ceremony at the Saint Kitts and Nevis High Commission in London, High Commissioner, His Excellency Dr Kevin M. Isaac, and Her Excellency Ms. Aleksandra Miovska, Ambassador of the Republic of North Macedonia to the United Kingdom, signed a joint communique officially establishing diplomatic relations. The joint communiqué, which formalises relations between the two countries, is another important step in the Government’s efforts to increase its diplomatic engagement with the governments and people across Europe and the Mediterranean region.
High Commissioner Isaac thanked Ambassador Miovska for accepting the hand of friendship and for working closely with the High Commission to bring the two countries closer together. Dr Isaac also thanked Ambassador Miovska for her keen interest in Saint Kitts and Nevis and commended her team’s eagerness to learn more about the Federation especially in the areas of sports and culture. Her Excellency Miovska also shared her country’s gratitude to St. Kitts and Nevis for embracing the opportunities for a new and deep friendship with her country.
The Ambassador of the Republic of North Macedonia had lofty praise for the establishment of diplomatic relations by committing herself to the enrichment of the relationship in London and beyond. Excellency Miovska further noted that the Republic of North Macedonia is equally committed to building stronger diplomatic linkages by deepening the people to people contacts between the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis. The Republic of North Macedonia is a country of the south-central Balkans. It is bordered to the north by Kosovo and Serbia, to the east by Bulgaria, to the south by Greece, and to the west by Albania. Its capital is Skopje.
High Commissioner Isaac, on behalf of Foreign Minister Brantley, extended an invitation for the Foreign Minister of North Macedonia, the Honourable Nikola Dimitrov and Her Excellency Ms. Miovska to visit the Federation and perhaps enjoy a game of cricket. His Excellency Dr. Isaac drew attention to the CPL cricket events taking place this month and suggested that this would be the perfect opportunity to learn more about the game of cricket but also to visit the twin island paradise. Her Excellency reciprocated and pledged to advance the spirit of cooperation preserved in the joint communiqué.
