The European Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, together with the three MEPs Eduard Kukan, Ivo Vajgl and Knut Fleckenstein will be visiting Skopje on Tuesday, confirmed on Friday the spokesperson for the European Commission, Maja Kocijančič. “As you can see on the agenda, I can confirm that Commissioner Hahn is travelling to Skopje on Tuesday, which is March the 21st, together with three MEPs that you know very well, Fleckenstein, Kukan and Vajgl. They will together meet with representatives of all parliamentary parties as well as President Ivanov”, said Kocijančič. In an interview with Deutsche Welle Commissioner Hahn assessed the meddling of Albanian PM Edi Rama who appeared as mediator among the Albanian poltiical parties in the drafting of the platform as counterproductive. “All of us who have been long enough I politics know that the advice from neighbors is rarely well accepted. Hence, it is counterproductive and it will take time to resolve this issue,” the EU Commissioner stated.
