Mickoski Meets Orban and Szijjártó in Budapest, Requests EU Support

VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski on Monday in Budapest had a working meeting with the Prime Minister of Hungary and leader of the sister party Fidesz, Viktor Orban, at which after the veto from Sofia, the opposition party asked for support in unblocking Macedonia’s entry into the EU. “It is true that the Macedonian government has a huge delay in fulfilling reforms, unfulfilled promises, and not fully committed to integration, just as it is true that the state and all its citizens must not be penalized because of such incompetence of the domestic government, but also the insufficient readiness of all member states of the union to sincerely extend a hand to the countries aspiring for the EU,” Mickoski said at the meeting with Orban. Mickoski and Vice President Aleksandar Nikoloski also had a working breakfast in Budapest with Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, at which Mickoski asked Szijjártó for support and involvement in unblocking the accession process.
