EU starts new discussion with Skopje

The Brussels-Skopje dialogue is not intended at bypassing Greece’s continued blockade of the country’s EU membership talks but at keeping alive the momentum for reform until the problem with Greece is solved.

The first talks start this Thursday in Skopje between teams led by the EU’s enlargement commissioner, Stefan Fuele, and Macedonia’s Prime Minister, Nikola Gruevski.

The first topics for discussion will be strengthening the rule of law and freedom of speech.
