The constitutional changes may be painful, but they are necessary, and therefore I would like to encourage my distinguished colleagues here in the Parliament, and also the Government, to do their utmost best to bring the country back on the European track, German Bundestag Foreign Policy Committee chairman Michael Roth said Tuesday in Skopje.
“We need more ambition for the accession talks. North Macedonia plays a very important role as a multiethnic, multi-religious and multicultural country. I would like to motivate my colleagues here that it’s worth it to be more engaged in fight against corruption, independence of judiciary, strengthening the rule of law and democratic culture in the country. The necessary reforms are not just an obligation for the Government, they are also an obligation for the parliamentarians,” Roth said ahead of Tuesday’s conference “Enhancing Berlin Process through Parliamentary Diplomacy”, taking place in the Parliament.
