Holstein: Macedonia has long been ready to start accession talks and EU membership


North Macedonia has long been ready to start accession talks, but also for EU membership. I see as positive that a high percentage of citizens do not see any future other than the future within the EU, said today the German Ambassador to the country Anke Holstein before the presentation of the results of “Analysis of public opinion on North Macedonia’s accession to the European Union (2014 – 2021)“.

Holstein underlined that there is great continuity in terms of enlargement and that the European Union is sticking to what it said in March 2020, ie to start accession negotiations with Macedonia and Albania, whose paths, she said, are open.

As for the new German government, Holstein added, it has a special paragraph for the Western Balkans for the first time and mentions the accession in the first chapter regarding the accession negotiations between N. Macedonia and Albania.
