Zaev meets with EU’s Tusk: change name and then we’ll see


Macedonia expects to secure a date soon to start membership talks with the EU and will step up its efforts to implement the reforms needed to join the bloc, SDS leader Zoran Zaev said on Friday. Macedonia won its candidacy status in 2005.

However, the accession talks remain blocked by Greece due to a decades-long dispute over Macedonia’s name. Greece says the name Macedonia implies a territorial claim over its northern region which has the same name, conveniently renamed in the late 90’s.

Since he took over last year via a US sponsored coup, Zaev has stepped up efforts to resolve the dispute. โ€œWe have never been closer to receiving a date to open membership talks with the EU,โ€ Zaev said in Skopje after meeting Donald Tusk, head of the European Council.

Solving the name issue โ€œwill open the doors to begin membership talks with the EU and to enter NATO,โ€ Reuters quoted Zaev as saying.

The EU for its part has said no new members until at least 2025, with Berlin now pushing the date even further to 2028.

    Yes, then we will see :))) an EU promise to see.. no, that is no promise at all. Change the name, that’s all.

    They have to accept us at the same time with Albania… they simply do not want us in EU, just like they do not want Turkey in EU.
    Perhaps is best we reunite Yugoslavia.. maybe even together with Turkey.. And give visas to Greece to enter Macedonia hahaha ๐Ÿ™‚
    I Love that idea ๐Ÿ™‚

    We do not need to be in the stupid EU. Let’s see what is left of the EU in Few years time. As for this illegal moron who has hijacked our beautiful country, his concrete boots are being measured for size.

    Forget the concrete boots, his lights should have been turned of long time ago. The eu is a dead horse going to the glue factory usa and the anglo/zionists canโ€™t control it forever.
