North Macedonia decides to allow Lavrov’s flight to attend OSCE ministerial meeting


North Macedonia has decided to allow Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s plane to land in Skopje, which will enable Lavrov to take part in an international event, Paralel.Az reports citing TASS.

According to a government statement, the window will apply from November 29 to December 1, when North Macedonia hosts a meeting of foreign ministers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Skopje. The government adopted a corresponding addendum to the resolution that imposed a flight ban on Russian aircraft, saying that this step complies with the European Union’s regulations and the sanctions, which make reservations for international conferences, such as the one to be held in Skopje.

The OSCE ministerial meeting will be held in Skopje from November 30 through December 1. The OSCE foreign ministers are expected to choose the chairmanship.
