EU’s Hahn wishes new name for Macedonia in two weeks


EU Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn expects the name issue between Macedonia and Greece to be resolved within the next two weeks.

– I am optimistic that in the next two weeks a solution will be found for the name or at least a solution that will pave the way for starting accession negotiations with Macedonia. I think that everyone agrees that it would be useful for the country and for the entire region of the Western Balkans, Hahn told the Foreign Policy Committee of the European Parliament.

Hahn pointed out that Macedonia successfully overcame the deep political crisis and made progress in implementing reforms and establishing good neighborly relations particularly with Bulgaria, but warned that much remains to be done, MIA reports.

    I don’t care what he wishes for. We do not need him or his unsolicited stupidity.

  • Goran Stavreski

    Hahn prior to becoming a EU monkey was director for an Austrian casino company who manages three casinos in Macedonia. The SDS at the time let them operate without a license, but the DPNE changed that, so from the getgo he wasn’t a fan of Grujo. And now, from a rep of gambling corporation, he is a rep of another gambling corporation, the EU.

    Well said Goran. There are always self serving objectives of these bureaucrats run by Brussels and Washington. Zaev the puppet is just a pawn who is aiding the destabilisation objectives of the west
