Babiš: EU leaders to keep their promise and start negotiations with North Macedonia

SKOPJE – The Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš urged the European Union to start accession talks with North Macedonia, saying failure to do so would send the wrong message to would-be members of the bloc. “Skopje and Athens managed to find a common language and reached a compromise on the name dispute. You, as a country, held a referendum, changed the name, changed the Constitution, implemented reforms and the European politicians who have promised to open EU accession negotiations once you achieve this, now it’s their turn to keep their word,” said Czech PM at the joint press conference with PM of North Macedonia Zoran Zaev on Tuesday in Skopje.
