Zaev urges citizens to end Macedonia's isolation

Macedonian PM Zoran Zaev, expressed hope the country's citizens will vote in favour of the name deal achieved with Greece in the upcoming referendum on 30 September in order to effectively end the country's isolation. “It is high time to integrate and become citizens of the European Union,” Zaev said in a speech on Monday evening.

In his words the Prespes deal has turned Greeks “from foes into friends of Macedonia.” Zaev said the agreement between Athens and Skopje offers “everything we have wished for” and opens the path for EU and NATO membership and criticised the opposition which is ardently opposing the deal.
