The German Embassy has said that a start of EU membership negotiations for Macedonia is and remains a substantial issue of security and stability in Europe. “We are convinced offering a European perspective to the country is worth it,” it pointed out in a press-release on Tuesday. The Embassy added that it was counting on Macedonia to intensify reforms and thus convince everyone that would still have doubts that it belonged to the EU. According to the press-release, EU integration of countries from the Western Balkans is a common European interest. “In order for this to succeed, we must adhere to our promises, implement these countries’ European perspective together. This is the best precondition to promote reforms and the legal state’s development and, with that, this is also the best precondition for well-being, stability and security inside Europe,” the Embassy noted.
