Parliament Adopts Resolution on Red Lines in Negotiations with Bulgaria

The Parliament adopted on Thursday with 95 votes in favour the Resolution proposed by VMRO-DPMNE for definition of the state position in the negotiations with Bulgaria over the open bilateral issues between the two countries which pose an obstacle for the process of accession of North Macedonia in the EU. The MPs also supported the amendment to the Resolution filed by SDSM for the Resolution to contain the constitutional name of the country Republic of North Macedonia. The resolution, which contains 8 points and focuses on the protection of the uniqueness of the Macedonian language and identity, received votes from all the parties present in the Parliament. “We are very glad that the Parliament kept the substance of this Resolution based on scientifically supported arguments. We very well know that the government are not able to keep their word for five minutes, but with this resolution there cannot be any actions going against the will of the people,” said VMRO-DPMNE President Hristijan Mickoski at a press conference after the adoption of the resolution.
