Nikola Poposki is the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Macedonia. Previously, he served as Macedonia’s Head of Mission to the EU and worked at the Joint Research Centre at the European Commission. Poposki believes that the V4 has been helpful in Macedonia’s domestic transformation and EU accession process. He calls for the Group to continue sending messages that EU enlargement in the Balkans is an irreversible process. He expresses concern over the Greek financial crisis, as it has hampered Macedonia’s economy and slowed down solving bilateral disputes.
