Our optimism, reality or pessimism is based on the experience we have been having in regard to the cooperation with Greece for the last 18 years, particularly in regard to this matter.
Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski together with Culture Minister Elizabeta Kanceska-Milevska attended Sunday the opening of an annual exhibition of artefacts excavated at archaeological sites across the country in 2009.
The amount that was excavated this year is small. There is a lot more to be done. The Government will continue to support nation-wide excavations, because artefacts are national and cultural treasure. In 2010 we plan to continue our support in this field, stated PM Gruevski after the opening at the Museum of Macedonia.
