President Pendarovski: Macron’s Statement Nothing New

On Friday, President Stevo Pendarovski, commenting on his French counterpart’s stands regarding enlargement and reform, stated that Emmanuel Macron’s statement was nothing new.

According to him, Macron’s idea has never set reforming the EU as a condition for enlargement. Pendarovski stated that there hadn’t been any statement by Macron in which the French President stated that the Western Balkans shouldn’t enter until the deepening process was completed.

As Pendarovski noted, the statement by European Council President Charles Michel confirms that.
