PM Zaev Agrees with Radev’s Sunday Comments on Skopje-Sofia Issue

“I agree that issues are resolved bilaterally in Skopje or in Sofia,” PM Zoran Zaev said on Tuesday, asked about Bulgarian President Rumen Radev’s comments on Sunday that Bulgaria’s policy on North Macedonia depended on open and constructive dialogue between the two countries. When it comes to the issue of a government in Bulgaria, Zaev hopes it will be formed. In the PM’s view, a third election process will not change anything. Asked about the use by There is Such a People President Slavi Trifonov of the term “North Macedonian”, Zaev said the Government would not send a reaction to a president of every political party. “However, if necessary, we will do that, too, because we are Macedonians who speak the Macedonian language,” the PM noted. Zaev believes it was about ignorance because Bulgaria and North Macedonia are friendly countries and have never had problems. VMRO-DPMNE’s Draft-Resolution, Zaev said his party, SDSM, fully supported it. However, he added that the Constitution with regards to the country’s name had to be observed.
