14:27, Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Deputy Prime Minister in charge of European Affairs, Bujar Osmani, during his working visit to Brussels, had a meeting with the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the Commission, Federica Mogherini, where they opened the topics on the enlargement process of the Union, as well as the perspectives of the Republic of North Macedonia ahead of the upcoming Commission report and the June meetings of the EU Council.

"In addition to the Prespa Agreement, we also had great success in achieving the historic Treaty of Good Neighbourly Relations with Bulgaria, as well as a substantial consensus on the Law on the Use of Languages, thus removing all major internal and external political issues," Osmani stressed, pointing out that the European perspective is the primary fuel for this success, which clearly delineates the power of the European idea for positive transformation of societies.

"The Republic of North Macedonia no longer has open political issues and again it occupies the central position in the Balkans as the main partner of the EU and NATO in promoting the democratic and western values in the region", Osmani stressed, stating the high expectations in the country for progress in European integration this year to the High Representative.

"The start of negotiations with the Republic of North Macedonia this year, in addition to the strengthening of the European momentum in the country, will be a clear signal for the entire region - as a positive example and motivation to close the open issues through dialogue, political openness and positive approach" - Osmani added, thus pointing out in particular to the dialogue between Prishtina and Belgrade as one of the most important political challenges in the region.

During the working visit to Brussels, Deputy Prime Minister Osmani had a meeting with the EU commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, he had a briefing with representatives of the Working Party on the Western Balkans Region (COWEB/COELA), and he will also take part in a briefing organised by the influential think tank European policy centre (EPC) on topic "North Macedonia on the EU path: A home run to accession negotiations?", as well as the Conference on topic: "Security in SEE- Security across Europe" organised by Hanns Seidel Foundation.

After the working visit to Brussels, the Deputy Prime Minister Osmani will travel to Vienna, where he will take part on a meeting of Ministers in charge of European affairs from the Western Balkans countries, which is held under the auspices of the Federal Minister for European Affairs of Austria at the Office of the Federal Chancellor, Gernot Blumel.
