Zaev announces the creation of the team that will lead the EU negotiations

Macedonia’s Prime Minister , Zoran Zaev, said today that now that the recommendation for the start of EU accession talks has been given, the team that will lead the the talks will immediately be appointed.

Zaev said that he’s very happy with the recommendation, but now there’s a need to focus on the reforms.
