European Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn has praised North Macedonia for mending the fences with its neighbors. The country has done a great job when resolving the disputed issues with Greece and Bulgaria, thus becoming the only country in the region with no dispute with any of its neighbor.
