European Union Ambassador to Macedonia Samuel Zbogar again reiterated to the public that, after the fiasco at the European Council in October, it’s best not to promise deadlines and timeframes regarding the opening of EU accession talks.

Speaking in Gostivar, Zbogar said that up until October he himself believed in the promised deadlines, that Macedonia will open EU accession talks if it changes its name, but now he can no longer make any promises.

Instead, Zbogar urged the citizens to work themselves, as should the Government of Macedonia, to improve their own lives.
