Varhelyi Welcomes GERB Decision to Support “French Proposal”

EU Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy Oliver Varhelyi on his Twitter account welcomed the decision of the former Bulgarian Prime Minister and chairman of the opposition Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB), Boyko Borissov, to support the “French proposal” to unblock the EU integration process of North Macedonia. “We thank the leader of the opposition GERB Boyko Borissov for making a historic decision for Europe and North Macedonia to accept negotiations based on the French proposal, which will allow access to the opening of accession negotiations with North Macedonia. We expect the (Bulgarian) government to submit the necessary proposal to the Parliament today, so that Europe can move forward,” Varhelyi writes.
