EU leaders summit to discuss N.Macedonia’s accession talks Thursday afternoon

The two-day EU leaders summit is to begin on Thursday afternoon in Brussels to discuss a number of important issues, including the opening of accession talks with the Republic of North Macedonia and Albania.

The EU failed to reach a compromise on the issue for a year and a half, mainly because of France’s opposing, which considers that it is necessary to first reform the negotiation process with candidate countries before giving the green light to other countries. The vast majority of EU members believe North Macedonia should be given the green light in order to maintain the credibility of the European Union.
