Maas: North Macedonia met EU accession criteria long time ago, opening of negotiations in Union’s interest

Let me be clear in saying that Germany sees the European perspective of countries in the region very seriously. This goes especially for North Macedonia, a country that met EU accession criteria a long time ago, and that is why we invested lots of effort to hold the intergovernmental conference during our presidency last fall. This did not materialize but we are also working on this during the current Portuguese presidency. This makes sense but it is also necessary, considering the trust that the people of North Macedonia have in us. Moreover, it is in EU’s interest to open this accession conference as soon as possible, said Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Monday.
