Right time to promote Macedonia in EU is 2008-2009: Slovenia
Skopje/Ljubljana. The real time to promote Macedonia’s EU bid is between 2008 and 2009, the Slovenian Foreign Minister Dimitrij Rupel said in an interview for Utrinski vesnik. In his opinion there is a real possibility for Macedonia to start accession talks as early as 2008 despite widespread scepticism to further EU amplification. Croatia will join first, followed by Macedonia, Rupel said.
