We are the European peoples of the Balkans! The EU is our only alternative
We are not alone and we are not isolated. This was said by the Macedonian Prime Minister, Zoran Zaev during the Economic Forum in Skopje, where the Prime Minister Edi Rama was also present. Not to mention the disappointment with the blockade imposed by Bulgaria, which postponed the date of the intergovernmental conference with the EU, Zaev said that the Albanian people will get even closer to the Macedonian people. He stressed that for the Republic of Northern Macedonia and Albania, EU integration remains the only alternative.
Excerpts from Zaev's statement:
"We are not alone and we are not isolated. We and the Albanian people have the same path ahead towards the EU and we are not alone, we share European politics. On this path together with us are Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo "Our peoples and our governments in the middle of the Balkans are demonstrating European values. We are moving very fast to remove barriers and obstacles between us. We have common challenges and common cultures. I am here with Prime Minister Rama to warn you." "We will bring our peoples even closer. For the Republic of Northern Macedonia and Albania, EU integration remains the only alternative."
