NM won the battle with Greece when Trump was there and joined NATO during his tenure. Therefore, I do not expect anything radical in the MV-US relations “, says for Zhurnal, Selim Ibraimi, political analyst.
On the other hand, Nano Ruzhin, a former diplomat, told that the US elections represent one of the most important events of the year at the political level.
According to him, the Balkan countries are interested in these elections, especially Kosovo and Serbia regarding the dialogue they are conducting, where a few months ago they signed an agreement in the presence of President Trump.
“First of all, the US elections are important for the whole world for a general political, economic, social but also health configuration and that is why they represent one of the most important events this year in the field of politics. Also, countries like those in the Balkans are interested, especially we see that the issue of the Pristina-Belgrade dialogue was at the center during the visit of the leaders of Kosovo and Serbia. There is a kind of attitude that’s supposedly when Trump is in charge of the US has more interest in Serbia and the Balkans than Biden. “But I think that this issue is very small that in the light of this issue we see the relations between Kosovo and Serbia as a kind of fateful solution if Trump or Biden wins”, stated for Zhurnal, the former diplomat Nano Ruzhin.
Analysts add that the US is seen as a guarantor of stability and the future of Northern Macedonia, which is another reason why this time the interest of public opinion in the country is very high this year.
The November 3 elections in the United States are being followed with interest in Kosovo as well, where the role of America is considered irreplaceable for the current developments but also for its future.

“I will work with Democrats and Republicans. I will work as hard for those who do not support me as for those who are for me. “This is the job of the president, care for everyone,” Biden said.
