Brdo-Brijuni Process Leaders Meeting Held in Skopje

Croatia and Slovenia will not support French President’s stand on a multi-speed Europe if it formally enters institutions in Brussels.

According to Croatian President Zoran Milanovic, such a thesis is unattainable. As one of the chairs of the Brdo-Brijuni Process, Milanovic said in Skopje on Monday that it was key for Western Balkan countries to stay in the process, while such announcements, regardless of who made them, were not supported a lot in Brussels.

Slovenia will not support such an idea either, the country’s President, Natasa Pirc Musar, stated. President Stevo Pendarovski stated that it was an old idea of Macron, adding that it hadn’t arrived formally in Brussels. According to him, even if it comes, he is convinced other EU members will not accept it.

Regional leaders agree that bilateral issues are still one of the problems on the EU path. The Brdo-Brijuni Process Leaders’ Meeting held in Skopje was successful. A joint declaration was signed, which hadn’t been the case the previous two years due to the open bilateral issues.
