Mickoski Levels Criticism at Government over Annex with Bulgaria

Commenting on Foreign Minister Bujar Osmani’s comments the issue of new requirements by Bulgaria, made in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski said on Saturday that the hard times for the country were yet to come.

However, as he added, those who accepted the annex to the Good-Neighbourliness Treaty should have thought about that. Mickoski described the constitutional changes as a Pandora’s box. The bureaucrats from Brussels, too, should have thought about what North Macedonia’s politicians accept, the opposition leader assessed.

“I believe in the good intentions of our strategic friends. I believe in the good intentions of Washington, Brussels, London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, and the others, but I cannot believe in the good intentions of Sofia,” he stated.
