To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions he has had with his EU counterparts on the accession of North Macedonia to the EU.
9 May 2019
The Government continues to make clear to its EU counterparts that it views the EU accession process as fundamental to delivering security, stability and prosperity in the Western Balkans. We will continue to support countries committed to the accession process to meet the necessary requirements. This includes Albania and North Macedonia. As and when candidate countries have met the requirements for accession in full, it will be for those countries and European Union members at the time to decide on membership.
