PM Zaev Doesn’t Feel He Is to Blame for Bulgarian Veto

PM Zoran Zaev doesn’t feel he is to be blamed for Bulgaria’s veto. In an interview with TV21, he rejects the opposition’s accusations, saying if he were a traitor, there would have been no veto. According to Zaev, the non-presence of Bulgarian representatives in the Prespa Forum Dialogue is not a good message. However, the PM is optimistic. Though he doesn’t reveal exact details, he points out that solutions exist that are acceptable for both sides. Zaev doesn’t accept a televised debate with VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski over the talks with Bulgaria. However, as the PM points out, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t want such debates, but rather, there will be one when there is a real essence or need.
