Roth: Germany supports opening of accession talks with N.Macedonia and Albania

Germany’s position is crystal clear. We support opening of accession negotiations with North Macedonia and Albania, German Minister of State for Europe Michael Roth said on Tuesday.

“Our position is based on the voting of the German Bundestag. The European Union has committed itself to peace, stability, democracy and reconciliation in the Western Balkans, which means it must fulfill its promises,” Roth said ahead of today’s meeting of the EU General Affairs Council in Luxembourg to discuss the opening of accession negotiations with Skopje and Tirana.
