16:22, Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Deputy Prime Minister in charge of European Affairs Bujar Osmani had a meeting with a delegation from the Adriatic-Ionian Initiative led by the Secretary General, Ambassador Giovanni Castellaneta, with the topics on the challenges and perspectives from the membership of the Republic of North Macedonia in the Adriatic-Ionian Initiative, the Strategy of EU for the Adriatic-Ionian region, as well as the European integration process of our country.

"Having full membership in the Adriatic-Ionian Initiative since May last year, the Republic of Northern Macedonia has been given the opportunity, together with the other member states, to contribute to the building of solid foundations for the European integration process through active contribution to the priority areas within this initiative, such as transport, tourism, culture and the environment ", stressed Osmani, adding that he expects the cooperation in the regional initiative to result soon with the involvement of the Republic of North Macedonia in the Adriatic-Ionian Strategy of the European Union, thus including the country completely in the regional flows.

"The Republic of North Macedonia, in spite of its outstanding success in addressing of the open political issues, did not at any time allow a reduction of the intensity of the reform agenda, showing a high level of maturity and readiness for negotiations with the EU," Osmani stressed, thus pointing to the concrete progress in key reform areas - the judiciary, security and intelligence services, public administration reform and the fight against organised crime and corruption.

During the meeting, the interlocutors expressed hope that the cooperation within the Adriatic-Ionian region, in addition to the economic development, will enable faster integration of the countries of the Western Balkans into the EU, fulfilling the corresponding criteria for interconnection, exchange and cooperation.
