“We at EUCOM recognize the importance of inter-ethnic integration in public school education for the Republic of Macedonia, and congratulate you on your commitment to work toward that goal. In doing so, you will help the future leaders of your community grow up with common values and established friendships – friendships that will foster a cooperative, integrated, and peaceful society,” said Lieutenant Colonel Mark V. Watkins, U.S. Army Chief, Office of Defense Cooperation at the U.S. Embassy.
The renovations are just one part of the activities that the schools will undertake in order to create and sustain the interethnic integration in education.
