Deputy PM Besimi continues his visit to Brussels, where he has held meetings with the new secretary general of the European External Action Services (EEAS), Alain Le Roy and other EU officials.

“EU is careful following the events in Macedonia and that is happening is not helping European integration.

Besimi has also unveiled Brussels’ proposal for intermediacy in the process of negotiations between the two largest parties VMRO-DPMNE and Macedonian Social Democratic Union (SDSM).

“Europe has offered its help by proposing the EU Commissioner for Enlargement, Johannes Hahn for involvement in the process of political dialogue and in finding a solution. This way, a proposal has been made for three MEPs, Eduard Kukan, Richard Howitt and Ivo Vajgl to be involved in the process of dialogue between the two parliamentary groups of VMRO-DPMNE and SDSM”, declared deputy PM Fatmir Besimi. /ibna/
