H.E. Mr Nikola Poposki has held the post of Minister for Foreign Affairs since 2012. He previously held several high-level positions, including serving as his country's ambassador to the European Union in Brussels from 2010 to 2011. He was also a Team leader in the European Commission, Joint Research Centre, from 2006 to 2009. Minister Poposki is an economist, and holds a master’s degree in European Economic Studies from the College of Europe in Bruges.

"Both Macedonia and Greece should see each other as partners – which we are already in real terms – and as equally worthwhile members of NATO and the EU. It is in the mutual interest of both countries to overcome the artificially constructed name issue. If we overcome that, we are settled. We don’t want to ‘win’ the naming dispute with Greece – we want to be real partners", further commented Mr Nikola Poposki for the LSEE Blog.
