VMRO-DPMNE deputy leader Aleksandar Nikoloski sent out a call to the European Union member states to approve the opening of accession talks with Macedonia next week. Nikoloski was in Rome, where he was meeting with Italian right wing and conservative parties, as well as with Vatican representatives. During the meetings, Nikoloski pointed to the numerous defects in the area of rule of law in Macedonia under the Zaev regime.

At the same time we ask that the citizens of Macedonia are not made victims of Zaev’s policies, and sacrificed to his corruption and incompetence. It is important that the European Council reaches a positive decision this coming week, and that the Government resigns shortly after so we can hold early general elections and hve competent and responsible people implement the reforms through VMRO-DPMNE, Nikoloski said.
