Reactions to Stands Presented by Michel and Macron

The message sent by European Council President Charles Michel during the Bled Strategic Forum, according to the Government, is a strong signal and chance that should be used.

Deputy PM for European Affairs Bojan Maricic said on Tuesday that the EU’s announcements benefitted North Macedonia, while waiting was not a good strategy. On the other hand, VMRO-DPMNE focused on the stand presented by French President Emmanuel Macron, who has said the EU should first undergo reforms.

According to the opposition party, the message means there is no guarantee that Skopje will continue negotiations.
