“They deserve a clear message on starting the accession negotiations. A year was given to the countries to arrive to the negotiation table, which reflects the Council’s internal discussion on the EU enlargement process. I fully support Albania and Macedonia in this process and trust their commitment to the reform agenda. I am looking forward to work with our partners over next months and I am ready to walk with them on the path to the accession negotiations,” Kukan writes in the statement.
MEP Eduard Kukan welcomed yesterday’s General Affairs Council’s conclusions on opening the path to accession negotiations with Macedonia and Albania.
