Berlin, 12 September 2019
Nikola Dimitrov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of North Macedonia, met with representatives from the German Bundestag and various ministries as well as experts from think tanks for a Political Background Discussion at Körber Foundation. Dimitrov and the participants spoke about the Prespa Agreement that has led to the adoption of the name North Macedonia and about the reform processes in the Western Balkan state. The discussion also focused on the upcoming decision of the EU to possibly open accession negotiations with North Macedonia and Albania.
Körber Foundation regularly invites a small circle of high-ranking actors within Berlin’s foreign policy community to its Political Background Discussions. As at the Bergedorf Round Tables, the discussions take place in a confidential setting, so as to enable a frank and constructive exchange.
