Skopje, 18 September 2018 (MIA) - Parliament Speaker Talat Xhaferi met Tuesday with European Parliament Vice President Dimitrios Papadimoulis, who is taking part at the 15. meeting of the Macedonia-EU Joint Parliamentary Committee in Skopje.

Xhaferi highlighted the excellent relations with the European Parliament, with the JPC meeting and a conference of young leaders in the Parliament in the coming days sending another clear message over the country's European future, the Speaker's Office said in a press release.

He said the parliamentary majority has invested all efforts towards removing the obstacles to Macedonia's Euro-Atlantic integration, including the Bulgarian Friendship Treaty and the Agreement with Greece.

Papadimoulis reiterated EP's strong support to Macedonia's European integration, and the unequivocal, almost unanimous support by MEPs to the Prespa Agreement.

According to him, both countries have given the European Parliament a strong argument, being a positive example in the region, capable of building bridges and finding a compromise.

Papadimoulis expressed optimism over a positive outcome of the referendum and the next steps towards its implementation.

Interlocutors voiced assurance that people will feel the agreement's benefits in the months following the deal's implementation, reads the press release. ik/21:21
