Johannes Hahn, Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, will travel to Skopje on Tuesday 21 March, together with the Members of the European Parliament Eduard Kukan, Knut Fleckenstein and Ivo Vajgl, EP mediators for the 15 July 2015 Pržino Agreement. Together, they will meet with political representatives. They will reiterate the EU's firm line to respect the outcome of the elections and allow democratic processes to proceed, and to rapidly form a reform-oriented government which will continue implementation of the Pržino Agreement. Last week, during the Western Balkans Six Leaders' summit, in Sarajevo, Commissioner Hahn outlined the importance of regional cooperation and warned about the risk of fuelling inter-ethnic tensions, by statements or actions that could undermine good neighbourly relations. Videos and photos of the visit will be available on EbS.
