Hahn: I applaud VMRO-DPMNE reformers’ courage in voting for the Prespa Agreement

Great meeting, tweeted early Thursday Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn after a brief discussion with a delegation of the VMRO-DPMNE reformers, represented by Petar Bogojeski, MP Emilija Aleksandrova and former minister Nikola Todorov, who were recently excluded from the party.

The three take part at the European People’s Party (EPP) summit in Helsinki at the invitation of EPP president Joseph Daul.

“I applaud their courage and bravery in voting for the Prespa Agreement. All threats against them must stop! All parties should work for the EU agenda which the vast majority of citizens want,” says Commissioner Hahn.

Hahn met late Wednesday with VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski, saying they had a ‘useful talk’.

“I was crystal-clear that ratification of the Prespa Agreement must now be finalized fast, without any obstacle. I welcome his commitment not to obstruct the procedure in Parliament. EU integration needs a loyal opposition!,” tweeted Hahn.
