15:42, Monday, November 12, 2018

Deputy Prime Minister in charge of European Affairs Bujar Osmani had a working meeting with EU Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy Johannes Hahn, where he briefed on the progress of the country in the field of implementation of the obligations of the European integration process.

"Plan 18 is already adopted by the Government and its implementation, for now, goes smoothly. I expect that address all key areas will be addressed timely and conditions for confirming the decision to start the negotiations will be confirmed," Osmani stated at the meeting, thus pointing to the progress in the implementation of reforms in the key areas, especially after the Parliament's opening up with the first green light on constitutional changes.

"The Parliament gave the first green light for the constitutional changes in accordance with the Prespa agreement, which not only opened the way for the implementation of the obligations under the Treaty, but also created conditions to accelerate the country's reform process in accordance with the conclusions of the European Council of June," said Osmani, emphasizing the progress of the relations between Macedonia and Greece, which are advancing at an accelerated pace.

"I personally attended, together with my colleague from Greece, Giorgos Katrougalos, the first flight after a 10-year break between Athens and Skopje, by which we symbolically and fundamentally brought the two capitals closer than an hour," Osmani emphasized, pointing out the agreement between the two countries on the trilateral initiative between Macedonia, Greece and Albania for the sustainable development of the Prespa region, as well as the initiatives for strategic partnership with Greece and their support for the country's European integration.

Osmani informed Hahn about the progress in the preparation of the negotiating structure for the start of negotiations. "We are actively working on the involvement of both the civil sector and the academic community in the negotiating structure, a process that we expect to further strengthen the negotiation expertise and efficiency of the state," Osmani stated.

"We have progress on all trajectories - addressing urgent reform priorities and recommendations related to the European integrations; implementation of the obligations under the agreements with Bulgaria and Greece and progress in good neighbourly relations; as well as the preparation of the team and the negotiating structure for the start of the negotiations," Osmani said, ensuring the EU Commissioner Hahn that Macedonia will successfully join the Strategy of the Commission for Enlargement on the countries of the Western Balkans and will manage to achieve the Agenda 2025.

During the visit to Brussels, Osmani held an informal briefing with representatives of the Working Party on the Western Balkans Region (COWEB), where he presented the Plan 18.
