Macedonian opposition leader cancels visit to Brussels after EU commissioner’s declaration

Macedonian opposition leader Zoran Zaev said on June 5 that he would not take part in the June 10 talks scheduled to take place in Brussels with other political parties.

The decision was taken following the declaration by European Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn in Washington, who said that elections in Macedonia have been considered positive by OSCE.

Zaev says that such a stance by the Euro commissioner is tendentious, because OSCE and the registered conversations confirmed that the recent elections had been rigged.
