EU Enlargement Commissioner says Macedonia needs to push on with reforms for EU accession

Enlargement Commissioner tells PM in Brussels to speed up reforms and work on solving ‘name’ row with Greece.

Macedonia’s new government has to continue making progress on necessary reforms, or it risks losing its recommendation to start accession talks with the EU, Europe’s Enlargement Commissioner, Stefan Fule, said, after meeting Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski in Brussels.

“The European Commission made a recommendation to start accession negotiations in October 2009. This recommendation is still in force and for it to continue to be valid the country needs to continue making progress on the necessary reforms,” Fule said.
