Foreign ministers of Macedonia and Russia said on Wednesday that relations between their two countries will enter a new era, news from Skopje said.

"Relations between Russia and Macedonia are not marred by open political issues, and our duty is to resume the cooperation," Sergey Lavrov, the visiting Russian foreign minister, said.

Lavrov made the remarks after meeting with his Macedonian counterpart Antonio Milososki at Ohrid, a lakeside resort about 190 kilometers south of capital Skopje.

"Both Russia and Macedonia are sharing common values, sympathies and cultural connection that could serve as a capital to enhance the relations in both political and economical fields between the two countries," Milososki said.

Lavrov said that Russia might grant Macedonia's request for building an extension of the planned South Stream pipeline in the tiny western Balkan country.

"There are no political obstacles for Macedonia to be included in the project," Lavrov said of the project which will transport Russian gas to southeastern, southern and central Europe.

Lavrov is on a tour of western Balkan countries, which also will take him to Serbia, Montenegro and Slovenia.
