Nikolaos Tzifakis says (about Zoran Zaev): “If the Council fails to take a positive decision until October – especially in the case of North Macedonia, it will seriously undermine the credibility of EU accession conditionality. It will also weaken the legitimacy of Zaev’s coalition government in Skopje that has undertaken considerable political cost with the implementation of the Prespa Agreement,” External link

Florian Bieber warns: “After all, the dialogue was launched offering enlargement as a reward for progress on resolving the dispute. If there is no tangible reward the EU can offer at the moment to the region, the incentive for compromise in the region diminishes,” External link

Florian Bieber says: “In terms of advantages, there is nothing natural about linking the two countries fate, as enlargement is based on individual merit, not groups. Furthermore, the two became ‘coupled’ not because their relations are particularly intertwined, like Serbia and Kosovo, for example, but rather because they happened to be in a similar stage of relations to the EU,” External link

Florian Bieber says: “It leaves the three countries with significant Muslim populations in the Western Balkans behind, sending a potentially dangerous signal that the EU is disadvantaging countries because they have large Muslim populations. In the current xenophobic environment in Europe, with strong anti-Muslim sentiments, this is the wrong signal,” External link

Nikolaos Tzifakis says: “Arguably, the progress registered recently in the two countries is not comparable.

Giuseppe Conte proseguito: “Auspico – (\*) – un ruolo centrale del Parlamento europeo come stimolo democratico per la Commissione europea e gli Stati membri ad agire in linea con gli impegni assunti all’inizio della legislatura. Il consiglio europeo è chiamato a valutare lo stato di avanzamento del negoziato relativo al prossimo quadro finanziario pluriennale. La nostra posizione è chiara e coerente, la tempistica del negoziato non vada a discapito della sua qualità. E’ essenziale lavorare all’avanzamento del negoziato verso una tempestiva conclusione ma senza che ciò si traduca in scorciatoie che conducano a un bilancio settennale inadeguato alla posta in gioco” External link

In view of progress achieved as tasked by the Council in June 2018, Latvia supports the opening of accession negotiations with Albania and North Macedonia.

We respect all the procedures, we look forward to receiving a positive opinion from the European Commission and we hope that Bosnia and Herzegovina will be given the status of a candidate country. (…) We are pleased with the progress made by our neighbours; I am convinced that both Albania and [North] Macedonia have to start negotiations, but we are convinced that Bosnia and Herzegovina should receive this candidate country status. European integration and NATO membership are very important to our future, are two main purposes when it comes to foreign policy; they are an important pillar for stability in the Balkans, for economic development (…) to stop the departure of young people from the Western Balkans and the region.
