High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/ViP Federica Mogherini travelled last Thursday to Skopje to discuss with her Macedonian officials future relations and the EU integration perspective of the country. During her visit Mogherini she met with President Gjorge Ivanov, PM Zoran Zaev and VMRO-DPMNE party leader Hristijan Mickoski.
The meeting with Zaev was followed by a press conference. The High Representative welcomed the historic agreement on the name issue reached in June and attended its signing at Lake Prespa. The EU has also been supporting the country, in line with the reinforced EU engagement with the Western Balkans, outlined in the Western Balkans Strategy, and commitments made at the EU-Western Balkans summit in Sofia.
