SKOPJE (N. Macedonia), September 17 (SeeNews) - The governments of North Macedonia and Kosovo signed an agreement to carry out a feasibility study for the construction of a new road connecting the two countries, the North Macedonian government said.

The feasibility study will examine the construction of a road from the city of Tetovo, in the northwestern part of North Macedonia, to Prizren, in the southwestern part of Kosovo, the government in Skopje said in a statement on Thursday.

This is one of 11 agreements signed between the two governments as part of a joint intergovernmental session held in Skopje.

The total value of mutual trade between Kosovo and North Macedonia is expected to exceed 400 million euro ($470.9 million) in 2021, prime minister Zoran Zaev told a press conference streamed on the government's YouTube channel.
