In talks in Ohrid on August 22 2010, Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov and his FYROM counterpart Gjorge Ivanov agreed on the importance of co-operation and Bulgaria's support for FYROM's integration into the European Union and NATO on the basis of full implementation of the necessary criteria, a statement by Parvanov's office said. The meeting of the two president was "a continuation of active political dialogue at the highest level and confirmation of good relations between the two countries," the President's media office said. Parvanov and Ivanov agreed Bulgaria and FYROM share a similar vision for a future in which all countries of the region will be integrated into European and Euro-Atlantic structures. This was the most important prerequisite for lasting stability, democratic and economic prosperity for the region, the statement said. The two noted the need for intensifying bilateral co-operation on the basis of a generally accepted text of a bilateral agreement to develop and enrich the principles and guidelines for relations between the two countries on the basis of pan-European values.
