North Macedonia to start EU accession talks in June

North Macedonia may start effective talks on joining the EU already in June, EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini said last Tuesday. “Our joint objective is to have a green light in June to start negotiations,” she said following a meeting with North Macedonian PM Zoran Zaev in Brussels.

Macedonia was granted EU candidate status in 2005 but a lengthy name dispute with Greece has blocked the launch of membership talks with both the EU and NATO for more than a decade.
