Kocijancic: Macedonia has clear Path towards EU

EC Spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic, answering a question in relation to a statement by the main opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis saying Greece would retain the control of Macedonia’s accession process and should not give up its right to veto, underlined Macedonia’s clear path towards EU membership. “The EU perspective is very present, the Council last year set forth a clear path toward the opening of accession talks in June 2019. We believe that in light of recent developments, efforts in this respect should be strengthened although this is a broader task that also involves work on reforms. Nevertheless, we have a clear road ahead,” Kocijancic stated.
