MEPs call for start of accession talks for Albania, North Macedonia

More than 20 MEPs from the Left and Liberals in the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee are urging the EU Council to approve the negotiating framework for North Macedonia and Albania.

The MEPs, including Bulgaria’s representative and rapporteur for North Macedonia Ilhan Kyuchyuk, called on stakeholders to find a solution and start negotiations before the end of 2020, according to reports by the Bulgarian Radio from Brussels and Angelina Piskova.

The Bulgarian side told the Bulgarian Radio that Sofia’s position remains unchanged and continues to support the start of negotiations for North Macedonia’s EU accession, albeit under certain conditions. /ibna
