North Macedonia Allegedly Placed on EU List for Abolishing Visa-Free Regime

Will the abuse of the visa liberalization of the citizens of the Western Balkans return visas for the North Macedonian citizens? This issue became relevant after the renowned newspaper EU Observer published a document according to which, certain member states of the Union are seriously considering the suspension of the visa-free regime due to the increasing number of people staying in Europe without authorization and the growing number of unfounded asylum applications from third countries. “Whatever the situation, the message is not good, in terms of the uniformity of the EU in relation to the Western Balkans, but it is nothing new. There are member states that think that the EU is functioning too hard for 6 new member states to come and join, to threaten their veto rights, with their commissioners,” Bujar Osmani, Minister of Foreign Affairs.
