EU Committee calls for Macedonia integration talks

The EU Committee called after a meeting on Tuesday on the European Council to end the three-year stalemate over Macedonia’s EU accession, imposed by Greece.

For the third consecutive year, the European Commission last autumn urged a start to membership talks with Macedonia, a move that has been blocked by Athens in connection with the so-called name dispute.

In its conclusions the committee also asked the Commission in future to respect Macedonia’s identity and continue using the adjective “Macedonian” in its next annual progress report on the country.
