In this part there is no room for any excuses and here things are in our hands, - Popovski
High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy of the European Union Federica Mogherini at the meeting with Macedonian Foreign Minister Nikola Popovski in Brussels has promised that the successful implementation of reform measures and holding successful elections in April next year, will bring a reward by EU country in terms of European integration.
This was confirmed by Minister Popovski, who pointed out that in addition to the Macedonian political scene and the vice President of the European Commission discussed the refugee crisis.
- With Mogherini we talked openly about the European perspective of the Republic of Macedonia.
Brussels eyes, of course, are aimed at successful implementation of the political dialogue in this regard, both in terms of reforms and in the conduct of elections on April 24, 2016 is something that will depend on the assessment of the next steps.
In this part there is no room for any excuses and here things are in our hands.
On the other hand, if it is successfully completed, we believe that there are conditions to be implemented, then there will be no excuses us on the EU side for such behavior should not be rewarded - Popovski
According to the Macedonian
Foreign Minister, Mogherini agreed that the status quo is unsustainable.
- Success in Macedonia, successfully conducted elections must be rewarded with penetration on the road to start negotiations.
Keeping frozen situation, however, can only lead to negative scenarios.
Therefore, in that part the responsibility will be on our European partners - Popovski
- From our side, we asked for a clear support and a clear line on the measures taken by Member States to the EU in the direction of separating economic migrants from those entitled to asylum or refugees from the conflict zone.
In this part, the Republic of Macedonia will take all measures to prevent illegal border crossings, and to ensure its limit, channeling the flows of migrants and clear definition of those who may receive EU status of asylum seekers to be missed up - says Popovski
