Screening Process to Start Next Week

The 14th meeting of EU-Macedonia Stabilisation and Association Council, chaired by EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, was held Friday in Brussels. The meeting was also attended by Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn as the European Commission representative, while Macedonia’s delegation, led by Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov, also included the Vice-Premier for European Affairs, Bujar Osmani. Commissioner Hahn also called on all parties in the country to engage in a constructive dialogue and continue to deepen the current reform momentum, especially on the rule of law, the intelligence service and public administration. “I would be in Skopje on July 17, which means next Tuesday, to launch the start of the technical part of the screening process together with the government and administration. But I would also like to express, on a very personal note, my congratulations for the invitation you have received yesterday by NATO to start the accession talks,” Hahn said.
