Talking at the joint meeting between European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs (AFET) and EP Delegation to the Euro-Latin American Parliamentary Assembly (DLAT), EU High Representative Federica Mogherini acknowledged once again the agreement reached between North Macedonia and Greece, announcing that, as already promised, North Macedonia and Albania's opening EU accession negotiations will start in June.

“When you look at the map of Europe, you see that the Balkans is in Europe. That is why instead of the term enlargement, I like to say reunification of the Balkans with Europe”, she pointed out, adding she believes that EU can use the maximum of its influences by acting consistently.
