HR/VP Federica Mogherini and Commissioner Johannes Hahn on the final Parliamentary vote in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia on the constitutional changes for the implementation of the Prespa agreement
We express our wholehearted congratulations on the Parliament's vote on the constitutional changes today. This is a crucial step in implementing the historic Prespa agreement. Political leaders and citizens alike have shown their determination to seize this unique and historic opportunity in solving one of the oldest disputes in the region, and decisively move forward on the European Union path. The EU strongly supports this agreement which sets an example of reconciliation for the region and Europe as a whole. As we are awaiting the completion of the next steps leading to the full implementation of the Prespa Agreement, the European Union remains firmly committed to continue to fully support and accompany the country towards its common strategic goal of EU integration.
