Serbia-Macedonia row: Vucic and Zaev ‘reach an agreement’

After Serbia has practically evacuated all the staff from its embassy in Skopje, and Belgrade accused its neighboring country of “offensive intelligence attacks”, top politicians of the two states suddenly declared “peace” on August 23.

Serbian president Aleksandar Vucic and Macedonia’s prime minister Zoran Zaev said that they had a “long and open” telephone conversation which had resulted in “agreement on five points”.
