Law on languages - not one of Brussels' priorities, Hahn says


The law on languages is a reasonable demand but it is not one of Brussels' priorities in terms of what Macedonia should accomplish on its road to the EU-integration, Johannes Hahn, Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, told Monday a joint press conference with Prime Minister Zoran Zaev.

The draft law on languages has entered a parliament procedure, being already adopted in a first reading under informal recommendation of the Venice Commission, but at the moment Macedonia's government should focus on identifying the priority spheres for obtaining positive recommendation from Brussels, Hahn said.
