SKOPJE – Today’s negotiations over the cleansing of the electoral roll and reforms to the media between the working groups of the political parties and Ambassadors Aivo Orav and Jess Baily came to an end without an agreement.
US Ambassador, Jess Baily, said he was not disappointed because sometimes to reach an agreement, time is needed.
“We had a five-hour constructive debate and we accomplished a lot. I can not state that an agreement was reached, but what I can say is that talks will continue. I am not disappointed that an agreement was not reached today, because sometimes time is needed”, said Baily.
Representatives from the political parties today gave statements and their views on the negotiations so far. Talks continue tomorrow.
