ALDE Party Co-President committed to North Macedonia’s European future

The Renew Europe Group in the European Parliament deplores the political attacks by the anti-European parties in Bulgaria targeting ALDE Party Co-President Ilhan Kyuchyuk MEP during his work on the annual report on North Macedonia, as standing European Parliament rapporteur.

Renew Europe believes that the stepping up of speculation and populist statements in both North Macedonia and Bulgaria does not help reach a constructive dialogue and does not enlist the requisite broad support for the report from the political families in the European Parliament.

The Group calls on all Bulgarian and Macedonian politicians to distance themselves from the unfair criticism made against Co-President Kyuchyuk. His action in favour of North Macedonia's EU accession has been well known for years, based on a deep European commitment and belief in a European future for the region. His actions and results for the region should be a source of pride and inspiration for everyone, and the Group is fully convinced he works hard for good neighbourly relations.
