Dimitrov and Roth Meet in Berlin

At the meeting with German Minister for Europe Michael Roth, Deputy Prime Minister Nikola Dimitrov in Berlin conveyed the Macedonian side’s concern that any further delay in the start of negotiations with the EU could cause increased distrust in the European perspective, not only by Macedonia but also the region. He stressed that decisive steps need to be taken to overcome all unprincipled requirements, in order for the country to receive the long-awaited and well-deserved validation as soon as possible, by approving the negotiating framework and holding an intergovernmental conference.
