Skopje, 14 May 2024 (MIA) - President Gordana Siljanovska-Davkova met Tuesday with the head of the European Union’s Delegation to the country, Ambassador David Geer, the President’s Office said in a press release.

At the meeting, President Siljanovska-Davkova voiced gratitude over the congratulatory messages she received from the heads of the European Union over her inauguration, and voiced readiness for complete cooperation with the EU Delegation in Skopje over the country’s accession process, highlighting the importance of the Delegation as a coordinator of the EU’s activities in the country.

“President Siljanovska-Davkova noted the need for progress in the process for EU membership, as the country’s strategic goal and the desire of the majority of Macedonian citizens. Our future, according to President Siljanovska-Davkova, is doubtlessly within the European Union, while the country’s place is on the same table with the European countries which we are united with because of historic, cultural and moral traditions and values,” the press release said. 

Siljanovska-Davkova highlighted her readiness to contribute to the building of unity in the country over issues of national and state interest, as well as to contribute to securing political and social consensus over the reform agenda and the adoption of laws marked with the EU flag, in order, she stressed, to avoid its misuse.

“The President stated that despite the high level of readiness of the Macedonian administration and its experience, the process of fulfilling the criteria is suffering due to the political circumstances and moves that certain EU member states are also responsible for. In that context, she pointed to the need of restoring trust in the merit-based process of integration, with a focus on fulfilling the Copenhagen Criteria,” the press release said.
