Zoran Zaev, North Macedonia’s Prime Minister, said on Thursday he had supported Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic’s initiative to create a “mini-Schengen” since that visa regime would bring the benefit for the whole Balkan, the FoNet news agency reported.

He added that the French ‘no’ to set a date for the opening of the accession negotiations with the European Union for Skopje and Tirana, was disappointing for him and his country’s people.

"I support every way in which the Balkans cooperate, instead of waiting for someone from the EU to assembly us. We can show our capacities ourselves,” Zaev told Serbia’s pro-government Pink TV.

He added he thought that "the time for improving relations with the EU member states will come while we are still negotiating."

Zaev reiterated Skopje would continue to go along the European road.

"As people in Serbia, we also want not only to join the EU but to live better, to be richer," Zaev said.
