The EU Ambassador to Macedonia, Aivo Orav today stated that he is expecting the visit from the German Special Envoy to Macedonia, Johannes Haindl to influence developments on resolving the political crisis and announced that the International Community will continue to support the process.

“I hope that today’s visit will affect developments. Last week, Ambassadors of other EU member states and I gave a statement, and it was not just a statement for the sake of giving a statement. We really want to encourage all parties to reach an agreement on the Pržino Agreement , but unfortunately, there are not many positive things to report today”, said Aivo Orav after a working lunch with Ambassadors of EU member states and with the German special envoy, Ambassador Haindl.

However, Orav hopes that tomorrow there will be a meeting between the working group of all four parties and, as he said, maybe they will be able to move forward. He declined to comment on the content of the inter-party talks.

“Our role is to bring all the parties together and help bring progress to the process. The International Community has close consultations here and we expect that the political crisis will soon be over”, said Orav.
