This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, said Li, adding that China has taken a completely new look under the firm leadership of the Communist Party of China as it adhered to reform and opening up and pioneered a road of socialism with Chinese characteristics in line with national conditions.

Chairman Li also said China will always combine its own development with the development of other countries, promote the building of an open world economy and strive to seek development space and institutional rights for developing countries.

“The NPC is willing to strengthen exchanges with the Parliament of North Macedonia and provide legal protection for pragmatic cooperation,” Li said.

Xhaferi said North Macedonia’s Parliament will actively support all-around exchanges and cooperation between the two countries, including cooperation on the Belt and Road Initiative, to advance the bilateral ties to a new level.

Parliament President Talat Xhaferi arrived in Beijing with a delegation consisting of vice-president of parliament Goran Misovski, coordinators of parlaimentary groups of SDSM, DUI and VMRO-DPMNE, and the general secretary of parliament, Cvetanka Ivanova, among others.

SDSM: Mickoski evades party leader meeting

The ruling Social Democrats blamed the leader of the opposition VMRO-DPMNE party of trying to block reform drive and hurt the country. “Hristijan Mickoski is running away from party leader meeting,” the SDSM said on Friday.

“He objects the census, yet he doesn’t want to sit at the table and talk. Mickoski wants the country’s population to remain officially uncounted for early two decades. The country does not  keep track of its population for 18 years. He follows in the footsteps of VMRO-DPMNE’s criminal wing. Mickoski is against justice. He is against rule of law and non-selective justice. He remains adamantly opposed to the ‘equality before the law’ principle. Mickoski is running away from talks on public prosecution law,” the Social Democrats said in a statement.

The ruling party claims Mickoski is allegedly making a push for snap election, but actually, he doesn’t want to talk about electoral code, because he knows he will be defeated.

“SDSM will not allow destructions. SDSM stands firm against any attempt to hinder the progress and reform drive. Any attempt to harbor Nikola Gruevski will fail, any attempt to cover for Gruevski’s wrongdoing will fail,” the ruling party said.
