There was nothing better created in the Balkans in the past 30 years than ‘mini Schengen’, President Aleksandar Vucic said in Ohrid on Sunday following the agreement he reached with Prime Minister of North Macedonia Zoran Zaev and Albania’s Prime Minister Edi Rama on free movement of people, goods services and capital among the three countries.
“These are huge changes and I know this is not really popular in my own country but I don’t care. There are no ‘Yugoslavias’ but only a better and more quality life for citizens. Maybe someone will destroy this, but this is certainly the future,” said Vucic.
Serbia and other countries in the region aspire to become the European Union member states, Vucic stressed. “But it doesn’t depend on us only. We have no other path but European path, but the most important path for us are lives of our citizens,” he added.
Vucic announced a meeting with President of France Emmanuel Macron with whom he will discuss the Euro-integration. “With permission of Zaev and Rama, I will ask Macron about the things that are important to them and also what’s important to me, and I will ask for support to our European path and this project,” he said.
