The possible negotiations for North Macedonia’s EU membership go through the dismantling of the counterfeits of Macedonian statehood, Bulgaria’s MEP and Deputy Chairman of VMRO party Angel Dzhambazki said. On occasion of the work of the Bulgaria-North Macedonia Joint Committee on Historical and Educational Issues Angel Dzhambazki contends that the term “Macedonian nation” was born on August 2, 1944 at the Prohor Pchinski monastery. “From then on it was promoted with the national betrayal of some Bulgarian leaders after 1944”, Angel Dzhambazki went on to say. MEP Dzhambazki congratulated North Macedonia’s President Stevo Pendarovski for saying that Gotse Delchev declared and identified himself as Bulgarian. "This is a big breakthrough. Currently the President of our North Macedonian brothers says that this is the historical fact-Gotse Delchev is Bulgarian", Angel Dzhambazki pointed out.
