The EU head of diplomacy, Federica Mogherini and EU Enlargement Commissioner, Johannes Hahn, issued a joint statement where they praised the agreement reached between the four political parties to hold the elections in FYROM on 11 December of this year.

“We praise the decision of the political leaders for the agreement that has been reached and all the decisions reached today, especially the one relating to the holding of elections on 11 December, as part of the agreement reached last year”, states the joint press release.

Mogherini and Hahn call on political parties to guarantee the necessary conditions for elections and said that they hope that after the elections, the next government will return to the path of European Atlantic integration. One of the obligations that are underlined are also the reforms.

Hahn has been a negotiator of the agreement reached between the four main political parties last June in Skopje, but so far, this agreement has been delayed. /balkaneu.com/
