North Macedonia

EU High Representative / Vice-President Josep Borrell had a video conference call with the Prime Minister of North Macedonia, Zoran Zaev, in Brussels on Thursday. High Representative Borrell congratulated Prime Minister Zaev on his re-appointment and encouraged the government of North Macedonia to continue delivering on the EU reform agenda.


He also reiterated that the EU remains committed to supporting North Macedonia in its response to the coronavirus pandemic and its consequences. The European Commission recently announced a very substantial Economic and Investment Plan to support the Western Balkans’ long-term recovery and bring the region closer to the EU.


High Representative Borrell welcomed the fact that North Macedonia’s level of alignment with EU foreign policy positions has increased in recent years, and thanked North Macedonia for its contributions to the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy missions and operations.
