"We do not need any intermediaries. No one knows our history better than we do.” This was said at a briefing in Rome by President Rumen Radev in response to a question about the reports that Portugal has proposed EU historians to participate in the Bulgarian-Macedonian Commission on Historical Affairs. 
Radev pointed out that progress depends on bilateral dialogue. "It is up to us to have a frank constructive dialogue, based on historical documents, on primary sources. The steps we have to take do not go through the other European capitals and from there to have pressure on Bulgaria," said President Rumen Radev. 
According to him, a sustainable and irreversible solution to the issues with North Macedonia must be sought.  
"I believe that together with our friends from the Republic of North Macedonia, with whom we share a common spiritual space over the centuries, we are determined to share a common future in a united Europe," the Bulgarian president said.
