Bulgaria: SDSM Leader: North Macedonia and Albania have done Everything, Now it's the EU's Turn BNR

The Republic of North Macedonia and the Republic of Albania, as neighboring and friendly countries, share the same values ​​and have a common future. This common future is in the EU, and I am convinced that both countries will soon start negotiations for EU membership because both North Macedonia and Albania have done everything they have been asked to do. It is now the EU's turn, said Dimitar Kovachevski, SDSM leader and mandate holder to form a new government at today's meeting with Albanian President Ilir Meta, MIA reported.
