Zaev-Mogherini: Start of accession talks – joint success of both North Macedonia and EU

 Prime Minister Zoran Zaev attended a dinner hosted by EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini for Western Balkans heads of state and government at the EU Mission in the United Nations in New York on Sunday.

PM Zaev said a few weeks are left before the EU Council summit, when North Macedonia is expecting a positive decision for the start of Union accession negotiations, the Government said in a press release.

PM Zaev said this is a crucial time for the country and all efforts are focused on maintaining the positive spirit among all EU member-states in supporting North Macedonia’s accession negotiations.

“The start of negotiations will be a joint success of both North Macedonia and EU, a result of the joint achievements during the pre-accession period,” added Zaev.

The Government delegation launches its participation at the 74th UN General Assembly by attending Monday’s summits dedicated to climate action and universal health coverage.
