Macedonia should get a date for EU accession talks because the citizens deserve it, says Nikoloski


    A regular session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is being held in Strasbourg this week. Many important topics will be discussed, including the current aggression in Ukraine and the need to ensure peace in Europe. Topics that are important for Macedonia and its neighborhood will also be discussed. In the numerous meetings that I will have in these three days, I will ask Macedonia to finally get a date for the start of accession talks with the EU and to start negotiations with the EU, because the citizens of Macedonia deserve it, VMRO-DPMNE Vice President Aleksandar Nikoloski told the media.
    During his meetings and addresses, Nikoloski calls on Bulgaria to implement the rulings of the European Court of Human Rights, in Strasbourg, which the country has not implemented so far.
    “Numerous verdicts in favor of the Macedonians from Bulgaria are not implemented by Bulgaria. One of the most significant that the court passed in 2020 is the ruling on the establishment of a club for ethnic tolerance, as well as the ruling on the establishment of a club for victims who were terrorized by the communist regime. These are two important judgments that speak of ethnic tolerance in Bulgaria, but also of the need to rehabilitate the victims of communist terror in Bulgaria. Something that Bulgaria does not want to implement, because the policy it is pursuing is similar to the policy it has been pursuing for the past 20 years, which is a policy of denial and a policy that means disrespecting the decisions of the Council of Europe. Therefore, I will strongly ask through the mechanisms of the Council of Europe for these judgments to be realized,” said Nikoloski.
