Szijjártó: Hungary will open concrete negotiations with the new government in Skopje


During the European Union presidency, which begins on July 1, Hungary will hold intergovernmental negotiations with all five membership candidates from the Western Balkans and will try to start concrete negotiations with the new, strongly pro-integration oriented government of North Macedonia, Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Peter Szijjártó said on Wednesday in Paris.

Speaking at the conference of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Szijjártó said that Hungary, in order to speed up the enlargement of the EU towards the Western Balkans, will open new chapters in the accession negotiations with Serbia and plans to close at least seven chapters of the negotiations with Montenegro.

He also said that Budapest plans to open the first chapters with Albania and adopt the negotiating framework with Bosnia and Herzegovina, which is the first step towards opening negotiations.
