North Macedonia will always have our support on its road to European Union membership and the votes of Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary, heard an event regarding the handover of the V4 Presidency.
Czech Ambassador Miroslav Toman, whose country takes over the presidency from Slovakia on July 1, said North Macedonia could be certain that the Visegrad Group countries would vote in favor of a date for accession negotiations, which has not yet materialized due to technical problems, not steps required by the EU.
Hungarian Ambassador Laszlo Dux agreed that North Macedonia should get a date for accession negotiations, reiterating his country’s support on this path.
According to the ambassadors, the start of the accession negotiations is necessary because reforms can be implemented in this stage only through the EU accession process.

Today’s handover event promoted the fundamental priorities of the Visegrad Group – reasonable solutions, harmonized approach, revolutionary technologies, regional cooperation, migration policy.
