North Macedonia and Bulgaria signed a good neighbor agreement, not agreement for problems and skirmish. We reached agreement on the common moments of the past which have to unite us, not divide us, North Macedonia’s Premier Zoran Zaev wrote in the social media. The experience of the committees on historical maters in Europe and elsewhere prove that cooperation requires time, hard work, patience, mutual respect and huge mutual dedication. We need a common idea to move forward above all. We know that this idea is alive and proved that we can find a common language even for the most delicate issues. We need to mature together in order to succeed, Premier Zaev further wrote. Earlier, Bulgaria’s Premier Boyko Borissov said that the North Macedonians need to mature, in order to receive a date to start EU accession talks.
