SKOPJE, North Macedonia
Stevo Pendarovski was sworn in as the new president of North Macedonia, and promises to serve all citizens in a deeply divided society and to lobby EU leaders to start his country's accession talks in June.
The 56-year-old man was sworn before Sunday Sunday. He won the election on 5 May in a strictly competitive run-off with stable competition.
Presidents of Albania, Bulgaria, Serbia and Kosovo attended the inaugural ceremony.
Pendarovski strongly supports the deal with Greece, which was completed in February, which eliminated decades' dispute under the name of Macedonia, in exchange for the membership of NATO and the European Union.
Former president Gjorge Ivanov, who finished his second term five years Sunday and finished the last five years, was a tough opposition to the name agreement.
