MEP Kukan statement on Enlargement and Stabilisation and Association Process

Following the General Affairs Council on June 26, 2018 and the conclusions on Enlargement and Stabilisation and Association Process, MEP Eduard Kukan, Chair of the EU-Serbia SAPC and Co-Chair of the Jean Monnet Dialogue process with the Sobranie, issued the following statement:

 “I welcome yesterday’s General Affairs Council’s conclusions on opening the path to accession negotiations with Albania and Macedonia. I want to congratulate both countries on progress made in the EU integration agenda. They deserve a clear message on starting the accession negotiations. A year was given to the countries to arrive to the negotiation table, which reflects the Council’s internal discussion on the EU enlargement process. I fully support Albania and Macedonia in this process and trust their commitment to the reform agenda. I am looking forward to work with our partners over next months and I am ready to walk with them on the path to the accession negotiations.”
