OSMANI: NORTH MACEDONIA IS THE EUROPEAN UNION'S MISSING LINK
16:45, Friday, April 05, 2019

Deputy Prime Minister in charge of European Affairs, Bujar Osmani had a meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Pertugal, Augusto Santos Silva within his working visit to Portugal.

At the meeting they opened the topics related to the European integration of the Republic of North Macedonia, before the coming European Commission Report and the June summits of theEuropean Union. Deputy Prime Minister Osmani referred to the implemented reforms in the key priority areas of rule of law, security and intelligence services, public administration reform and the fight against organised crime and corruption, which, as Osmani said, created the so- called track record, i.e. visible results from the reforms, as an important benchmarkfor the European integration process.

"I highly appreciate the Portuguese support to the Euro- Atlantic aspirations and for the start of the accession negotiations of North Macedonia, as well as the general position of Portugal for support of the enlargement on the Western Balkan countries which will bring stability to the entire region and open the doors for cooperation in many fields, which is certainly in the interest of maintaining stability throughout Europe", stressed the Deputy Prime Minister Osmani pointing to the new European reality on the Balkans - the Republic of North Macedonia as a stable partner of the European Union in the promotion and protection of the European idea in the region, or as he stressed:  "The link that Europe is missing on the Balkans"

"Although we are currently in a pre-election campaign, we are continuing to implement the reforms with a strong dynamic to deliver results in this key period for our European integration, to receive a clear recommendation from the Commission, as well as confirmation of the decision to start negotiations with the EU this year year," Osmani added.

As part of his working visit to Portugal, the Deputy Prime Minister Osmani also had a meeting with the President of the Committee on European Affairs within the Parliament of the Republic of Portugal, Regina Bastos, and he will participate at the Annual Horasis Global Meeting on Sunday (April 7th) which is one of the world's leading government business leaders where this year's discussions will be focused on the topic "Catalysation of the benefits of globalisation".
