-God gave wings to the bird to conquer the heights, to the fish it gave fins to conquer the depths, to man it gave reason and hands to conquer the heights and to hug friends. I am here to convey to you the greetings and hugs from the citizens of Macedonia, because they are infinitely grateful to the friends who live in this area on the other side of the border. Macedonia is writing a new page in the Balkans together with you, because at the time when Bulgaria was president of the EU we received an invitation to join the European family, yesterday we received an invitation to NATO, there is an opportunity to apply for funds from the IPA program with R. Serbia. All in all, the borders of these areas are becoming a formal thing, and we will all be able to continue to cooperate much more in the next period.
The event was accompanied by a rich cultural and artistic program, which was visited by a large number of citizens from Kriva Palanka and the neighboring municipalities of Kyustendil and Bosilegrad.
