16th meeting of the Stabilisation and Association Committee between the European Union and the Republic of North Macedonia Brussels, 20 June 2019
16:22, Thursday, June 20, 2019

On June 20, 2019, the 16th meeting of the Stabilisation and Association Committee between the Republic of North Macedonia and the European Union (CSA) took place in Brussels. The meeting was chaired by Ms. Genoveva Ruiz Kalavera, director for the Western Balkans and Ms. Kalinka Gaber, State Secretary for European Affairs of the Republic of North Macedonia.

The meeting of the SA Committee took place a few weeks after the announcement of the enlargement package for 2019, when the Commission again gave recommendation to the Council to open accession negotiations with North Macedonia on the basis of its positive assessment of the progress achieved and the fulfillment of the conditions set by the Council in June 2018. The Committee took note of the Council's decision of 18 June 2019 to return to the matter in order to reach a clear and substantive decision as soon as possible and October 2019 at latest.

The Stabilisation and Association Committee noted the situation regarding the political and economic criteria, the approximation with the European Union legislation (acquis) and the implementation of the Stabilisation and Association Agreement. The progress achieved in promoting EU reforms was welcomed, especially in areas identified in the Council Conclusions of 2018, including through Plans "3-6-9" and "Plan 18".

The European Commission has encouraged all political parties and other stakeholders in the country to work together to maintain and strengthen the political dialogue and to continue to implement the EU-related agenda, including in key areas such as the judiciary, the fight against corruption and the organised crime, intelligence, public administration, in an inclusive and transparent manner. The European Commission stressed the importance of maintaining progress on alignment with the EU acquis.

Both delegations reiterated the Council Conclusions of June 18, 2019 and strongly welcomed the historic and unprecedented Prespa Agreement and the Treaty of good neighbourly relations with Bulgaria.
