We have very difficult tasks in our negotiating frameworks and we have a lot of work ahead of us in all Chapters. At the same time, we also have difficult bilateral issues. The delivery on those issues gives us optimism, but also the right to demand that the EU make a time frame as soon as possible, which will be as realistic as possible – neither too optimistic, nor too vague, which will pressure us to think in a 20-year framework, said the Deputy Prime Minister for European Affairs Bojan Marichikj, at today’s joint press conference with his Serbian counterpart Tanja Miščević.
According to the deputy PM, we should think in the shortest possible time frame and press for it until the end of the decade, i.e. at the first opening of the gates for new members, N. Macedonia and Serbia to be among the first to enter.
