EU Path and Current Developments Discussed at Mickoski-Varhelyi Meeting

North Macedonia’s European perspective and current developments were the topic of discussion at the meeting between VMRO-DPMNE President Hristijan Mickoski and EU Enlargement Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi in Brussels on Wednesday. As the opposition leader pointed, the abuses of power in the country with the European values are noticeable, with the introduction of higher fees for citizens through abuse of the so-called EU flag procedure being the most striking example. “I am not here for us to create obstacles on the path towards EU, but rather for us to create a positive climate so that the country starts to move forward, which is possible with an honest and sincere approach. There is no alternative to the path towards the EU, while everything else will represent buying time and new false hope from PM Zoran Zaev,” he stated.
