Skopje, 16 May 2018 (MIA) – The upcoming summit in Sofia will unlock the integration processes of the Western Balkan countries, put on hold as a result of the inability of EU members to advance their relations, which should have led to admission of new members, former Slovenian President Milan Kucan said Wednesday at a meeting with Macedonia’s Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi.
Slovenia, Kucan said, will always support Macedonia’s bid to join the European Union and NATO, as it has fulfilled its part of the tasks to that effect. Now it is up to the Euro-Atlantic organization to do their part of the job, he added.
Xhaferi commended the excellent Macedonian-Slovenian relations. He also extended gratitude for Slovenia’s regular support of Macedonia’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations.
He briefed the high guest about Macedonia’s efforts to advance the relations with its neighbors, notifying to that effect the Friendship Treaty with Bulgaria and intensified negotiations with Greece on settling the name dispute, the Speaker’s Office said in a press release. lk/18:36
