Commission Spokesperson Pisonero Reiterates Stand on EU Path

Enlargement is a merit-based process and requires investments and commitment to essential reforms, European Commission Spokesperson Ana Pisonero says.

She reiterates the EU’s stand that in conditions when there’s enlargement momentum, the Commission encourages all sides in North Macedonia to work together to move the country forward on the EU’s path.

“The conclusions of the European Council are clear: the European Union is ready to end the stage of opening negotiations with North Macedonia as soon as the country implements its commitment to completing the constitutional changes, as stated in the Council’s conclusions from 18 July 2022, in accordance with its internal procedures,” Pisonero points out.
