Hahn: I hope Gruevski’s extradition will happen, but it’s unlikely

EU Commissioner for Enlargement, Johannes Hahn has declared ahead of the start of the meeting of the EU Council of Foreign Ministers that he does not believe that Nikola Gruevski will be extradited from Hungary to Macedonia.
Asked if he supports the amendments adopted by the European Parliament where Hungary is asked to return Gruevski to Skopje, Hahn said that: “I hope this will happen, but I’m quite doubtful, because the two countries do not have an agreement for extradition. However, I understand the position of the European Parliament”.

Hahn declared that last week he has talked to ministers Nikola Dimitrov and Radmila Sekerinska about the “way forward”, the Prespa Agreement and the reforms that Macedonia needs to carry out in order to obtain a positive opinion by the European Commission.
