EU High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini and Commissioner Johannes Hahn have jointly welcomed the vote for the new Government of former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia led by Prime Minister Zoran Zaev.

They said the European Union would support the Government and the opposition will need to do to fully implement the 2015 Pržino Agreement and the Urgent Reform Priorities.

"We expect all parliamentary parties to put their divisions aside now and work jointly on delivering, from the outset, on a common reform agenda that would benefit the country in its entirety" said Mogherini and Hahn in a joint statement.

"This is also essential to bring the country back on its European integration path, a process that the citizens clearly want and deserve" observed Mogherini and Hahn.
