No: 80, 27 March 2020, Press Release Regarding The Start Of Eu Accession Negotiations With North Macedonia And Albania

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 27.03.2020

We congratulate our friends and Allies North Macedonia and Albania on the start of their EU accession negotiations and the EU.

Also as a negotiating candidate country, Turkey, which has supported the Euro-Atlantic integration of the Balkan countries from the outset, believes that, this belated decision will make important contributions to the stability and prosperity of the region and to ongoing EU’s efforts to become a global power.

As the most important soft power instrument of the EU, a credible and fair enlargement policy, which is not politicized at the expense of narrow-minded national interests and encourages 7 candidate countries, is needed more than ever.
