Foreign Minister Bujar Osmani said Saturday he doesn’t believe Macedonia and Albania will be separated on the EU path and the country should not give up on the possibility of an intergovernmental conference in June and a start of the talks even with a caretaker government in Bulgaria, since the decision is a technical one.
“I believe that the decoupling debate is not right, small countries should base their policies on principles and values, not tactics and strategies. The process should be based on strict conditions and meeting of criteria. North Macedonia has fulfilled the criteria and has delivered, now it is EU’s turn to deliver,” noted Osmani.
Osmani reiterated that countries in the region such as Kosovo, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro are closely monitoring Macedonia’s process towards the EU, i.e. watching how the EU will respond to our country, because as he said the country has atypical and rapid development in meeting the required requirements to start accession negotiations.
