Zbogar: EU Negotiation Framework Talks to Proceed after Summer Holidays

EU Ambassador to Macedonia Samuel Zbogar said on Friday that talks over the negotiation framework for the process of accession of Macedonia in the EU are expected to continue after the summer holidays. “The member states are still discussing the negotiating framework and now during the summer there was a break and think in the September they will come back, so we will have to wait the member states to approve the negotiating framework. Only once this is approved, we can fix the date for intergovernmental conference and we are hoping that this going to happen during the German Presidency of the EU Council,” Zbogar said during his visit of Kumanovo. Zbogar there met Mayor Maksim Dimitrievski, who handed him a recognition for an honorary citizen of Kumanovo.
