Pope Francis underlined the "cultural wealth" of the North Macedonia, which - as he said - "is a reflection of your most precious and valuable treasure: the multiethnic and multifaceted makeup of your people, the fruit of a rich history and why not, even complex relationships intertwined over the centuries."

"This mingling of cultures and ethnic and religious affiliations - Pope said - created a place for a peaceful life and a sustainable coexistence where individual identities knew and could be expressed and developed without denying, suppressing or discriminating against others".

"They have thus provided a form to the relationships and situations which, according to this profile, may offer you an example to have the reference point for a peaceful and fraternal coexistence in distinction and mutual respect".
