European Greens: North Macedonia’s EU-Integration Should Not be Obstructed

The European Greens’ Party released an announcement on Monday in which they appeal that the integration of Macedonia in the EU should not be obstructed. The strong European orientation of the government of North Macedonia and the country’s demonstrated, laborious, and ultimately successful efforts to implement meaningful and necessary reforms to put the country on the path towards membership were recognised by EU member states in March 2020. The EU must now answer the expectations of the citizens of North Macedonia for a European future by expressing appreciation for their efforts and finally starting the accession negotiations. Debates between neighbouring countries should be dealt with on a bilateral basis and should not be used as negotiating tokens to block processes on an EU level,” writes the announcement of the European Greens.
