VMRO-DPMNE President Hristijan Mickoski met with a delegation of EPP members of the European Parliament led by Manfred Weber which is visiting Macedonia. During the meeting, Mickoski warned that the unchecked corruption and criminal activities of the Zaev Government will continue to undermine Macedonia’s push to open EU accession talks.

The fundamental strategic goal of VMRO-DPNE is that the Republic of Macedonia joins the European Union. The new government which will be formed soon by VMRO-DPMNE will put Macedonia on a fast track to the EU. Regarding the challenges we face, main among them are the crime and corruption, especially among the highest echelons of power, which are left unresolved by the judiciary. This provides additional arguments to those who have expressed a dose of skepticism toward EU enlargement and Macedonia’s future place in it, Mickoski told the visiting EPP representatives.

The group also included Andrey Kovatchev, Zheljana Zovko and Nina Tavcar.
