Macedonia may develop even outside EU, NATO, says German ambassador
“Macedonia’s development does not depend on the membership in the EU and NATO. The progress and the reforms may continue even outside these organisations,” said German Ambassador to Skopje Gudrun Steinacker, writes Macedonian Vecer daily.
In her words, Macedonia deserves the EU and NATO membership and the country has met all the criteria, but Germany cannot react in separation to all the rest of the member states.
“Geographically speaking, Macedonia belongs to Europe and it is a member of many European organisations,” Steinacker said further.
