EU ambassador to Skopje, Aivo Orav declared today that it’s now time that politicians in FYR Macedonia show how ready they are for the integration of the country in the EU.

“In the recent years, we have heard many beautiful words for the integration of the country in the EU. Now it’s time for all politicians, I repeat, all politicians to show that they base these words on actions. We’re here to help your country in the EU integration path, but we must see if you really want this”, declared ambassador Orav during the promotion of the twinning project for the strengthening of capacities for the European integration process.

Orav didn’t comment on the registered conversation between Interior minister, Gordana Jankulovska and Finance minister, Zoran Stravrevski, where the EU ambassador and EU office administration in Skopje were insulted. “I have no comment on this issue”, said EU ambassador Orav.

Meanwhile, deputy PM for European Integration, Fatmir Besimi said that FYROM’s destination is the EU.

“This is the only path and there is no other path. The advices that the EU ambassador gives are very clear”, Besimi said. /ibna/
