Ex-President Crvenkovski Critical of Bulgaria’s Positions

Bulgaria today wants to get what it didn’t with the Balkan and two World Wars, former President Branko Crvenkovski assessed at the Western Balkans Forum in Sarajevo. As he added, Bulgaria’s stand is perfectly clear to him, but he’s interested in how the other EU members see that. Crvenkovski reacted also to the statements by the address of former Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev, who reiterated his theses on the Macedonian people and language as a creation of Josip Broz Tito. “I will start off my reaction to President Plevneliev’s statement in the Macedonian language. And that’s not a coincidence. That is my mother tongue, that’s the language my father, my grandfather, and my grandfather’s grandfather spoke in. So, several generations before me that had been both born and lived before the birth of Josip Broz Tito and Stalin,” Crvenkovski noted.
