(ANSA) - BERLIN, June 7 - The difference of opinion over the opening of negotiations on Albania's and North Macedonia's accession into the EU is becoming stronger and stronger in the Great Coalition ruling Germany. "I am very sorry that the CDU-CSU Union refuses, unlike what they promised a year ago, to open up accession negotiations with Albania and North Macedonia," European Affairs undersecretary Michael Roth (SPD) told the Süddeutsche Zeitung. According to Roth, the negative stance has been expressed by the Christian Democrats in the Foreign Affairs Committee at the Bundestag. According to the undersecretary, "both countries have done their homework, in terms of security and stability in the region, it is imperative to be trustworthy and send positive signals. Everything else would be negligence in terms of foreign policy," he warned. (ANSA).
