EU’s Mogherini: Opportunities for Launch of Negotiations to be Taken

The next year will be intense one for preparations towards the opening of accession negotiations both with Macedonia and Albania, EU’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Monday in her speech at the annual EU Ambassadors Conference 2018. “Let me say very clearly: these opportunities have to be taken now – this year is the year. It is not a concession we make: it is in the interest of the European citizens, both inside and outside of the European Union,” Mogherini said. She also notified that just before the summer ‘we celebrated together the agreement between Athens and Skopje, and in just a few weeks’ time there will be a referendum on it, in what I hope will become the Republic of North Macedonia.’
