Hahn not meeting civil society during visit: spokesperson

Hahn not meeting civil society during visit: spokesperson

Brussels, 20 March 2017 (MIA) - Commissioner for European Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn will not meet with representatives of civil movement "For Joint Macedonia", which has led the rallies for a unitary country over the past couple of weeks, MIA reports from Brussels.

European Commission spokesperson Maja Kocijancic said Monday that Commissioner Hahn received other requests for meetings, but that he and the three accompanying Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), Eduard Kukan, Knut Fleckenstein and Ivo Vajgl, would meet only with representatives of the Macedonian political parties.

"As I already said on Friday, he is due to meet political representatives. It is true there were other requests as well, and very often when he travels to the country we try to meet as many interlocutors as possible, including from the civil society, but this time the commissioner will meet the political representatives as the agenda does not allow for more", said Kocijancic.

Over the weekend, "For Joint Macedonia" front runners asked for a meeting with the Commissioner and the MEPs during their visit to Skopje on Tuesday. ik/13:18
