Bulgarian President Rumen Radev said during his visit of Rome that assistance from foreign history experts is not necessary in the Macedonian-Bulgarian Historic Affairs Commission. “We do not need that. No one knows the history of this region better than ourselves. I spoke with my Macedonian counterpart Stevo Pendarovski about this. The commission should do its work concerning history issues, and we shall take care of the political nature of the affairs. We need to pledge for finding a sustainable and mutually acceptable solution for the bilateral issues,” Radev said. The proposal for engagement of foreign history experts is contained in the resolution proposed by the Portuguese EU presidency for resolution of the Skopje-Sofia dispute. Presidents Pendarovski and Radev travelled to Rome for mutual observation of the Day of Ss. Cyril and Methodius at the Basilica Papale di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, Italy.
