Borrell: No Obstacles for North Macedonia to Become Part of EU

EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy Josep Borrell stated for the
Bulgarian National Radio (BNR) that there are no obstacles for North Macedonia to
become part of the EU. “North Macedonia is making good progress and from the
European side, there is nothing that would block its accession to the EU. In this
accession, European principles and standards will be strictly observed. For this, good
cooperation is definitely necessary and regional cooperation remains an essential
element, as well as stabilization so that the accession process can be implemented. But
bilateral issues shall not be binding and shall not determine the accession process,”
Borrell said.
