Macedonia and Turkey signed Friday an agreement on military-financial cooperation. It envisages Turkey to donate military aid to Macedonia at its own choice in amount of one million US dollars in 2011.
In addition to the agreement, Turkish Defence Minister Vecdi Gonul – who is paying an official two-day visit to Macedonia together with a delegation of the Turkish Ministry for National Defence – is due to hand over a $253,000 donation to the Macedonian Army (ARM).
After signing the agreement, Gonul said that even though Macedonia and Turkey didn’t share a joint border, the Turkish people were perceiving Macedonia as their closest neighbour.
“Turkey is not only the first country that recognised Macedonia and sent an ambassador, but it also recognised the country together with its millennium-long historical past, not with some abbreviation,” the Minister said.
He added that Macedonia since his first visit back in 2004 had significantly advanced in the field of defence and democracy.
“Today’s signing of the agreement is a step forward in establishing a higher cooperation on the existing excellent cooperation between the countries. Bilateral cooperation especially in the field of defence industry will be significantly reinforced,” Gonul stated.

The country (on the left hand side) which you have also painted in red is GREECE. Don’t they teach you geography in elementary school ? or has your country it’s own version of google earth !

John, of course they have been taught geography!
This map is what they really dream: to seize Greece! As they are puppets of the Americlans they would not hesitate to declare war against Greece and let the war hawks sell more guns…
It is more than obvious: The Balkans are and always were a powderhouse. The Americlans administration would really love to see them fighting each other, un – stabilize EU and drawν down the Euro: the dollar must dominate!!!

Did you learn history in elementary school? Macedonia was devided in 1913 by the Buckarest Treaty, and that meand that greece who took a big part of macedonia must give it back afret 100 years, and next year the 100 years are over. Educate yourself a bit
