The members of the Parliamentary Friendship Group with Germany met today with the delegation of the German Bundestag’s Committee for the Scrutiny of Elections, Immunity and the Rules of Procedure, visiting the National Assembly.
Markovic also spoke about the problems rocking the European Union such as the migrant crisis, terrorism and the Brexit fallout, hoping that the EU would find a single and efficient solution to them.
The head of the German delegation Helmut Brandt was pleased by the size of the PFG with Germany saying that it exemplifies the excellent relations between the two countries.
