North Macedonia shares big common goals with Bulgaria and Sofia and Skopje will find a way to solve the issues connected with the good neighbor agreement, North Macedonia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikola Dimitrov said. Minister Dimitrov was asked whether Bulgaria’s threat to block the negotiations between Skopje and the EU, if an agreement about Gotse Delchev is not reached, sounded realistic. The historical issues are very delicate and emotional, but we will find a solution based on mutual respect and friendship, Minister Dimitrov replied. Nikola Dimitrov voiced hopes that he would have the opportunity to discuss the issue with Sofia during the Black Sea Initiative meeting. I believe that North Macedonia’s successful EU integration is very important for our Bulgarian friends and this country will encourage our accession negotiations, Minister Dimitrov added.
