PM VISITS GERMANY
Macedonian prime minister Nikola Gruevski made his first official visit to Germany today to get German support for Macedonia's EU and NATO candidacy.

"We really expect some support and we are willing to work for this and to change many things in the country," Gruevski said, adding that fighting crime, boosting the judicial system and joining the EU in 2013 and NATO in 2009 are top government priorities.
Merkel, who welcomed the Gruevski at the chancellery with military honors, replied: "We want to do everything possible to ensure Macedonia has a good path to the future."
The visit continues on Tuesday and Gruevski will also talk about the possibility of German investments in Macedonia.
