“Macedonian Bulgarians will fight for equality, which is guaranteed in their Constitution. They fight for full integration of theirs in the public life in the country. This is radically different than the separatist stands and minority claims being expressed by the people President of North Macedonia Stevo Pendarovski meets,” Bulgarian President Rumen Radev is quoted as saying by BGNES. According to him, Bulgarian PM Kiril Petkov’s visit to Skopje was rash. Radev added that Bulgaria was always ready for dialogue. OMO “Ilinden” – PIRIN reacted to Radev’s comments, describing them as a lie, defamation, and embarrassing.
