25/01/2023 | 19:56:52 Thank you very much. Of course, knowing that Jacinda Ardern has been the Vice-President of the party, and I thought that if you are not taking over, you cannot win. She took over, and they won, and her second term. So of course, an engaged feminist like her and some other feminist prime ministers. I think we know how to achieve goals. But let me wait.

At the level of the statement of principle that is almost unanimous agreement in the EU on the need to accelerate the accession of the Western Balkan countries to the EU.
