The EU Commissioner Johannes Hahn before the start of the EU’s Foreign Affairs Council this morning said that he doesn’t believe that Nikola Gruevski will be extradited from Hungary to Macedonia.

When asked whether he supports the amendments of the European Parliament in the report about Macedonia with which it is requested that Hungary should extradite Gruevski into Macedonia, Hahn answered that “I hope that will happen, but it is less likely because these two countries don’t have an agreement, but I understand the position of the European Parliament.”

Hahn has reported that he has spoken with ministers Nikola Dimitrov and Radmila Shekjerinska about the road forward and the Prespa Agreement in the forthcoming weeks, including the reforms that have to be implemented in order for Macedonia to receive a positive report from the European Commission.
