The President of the Republic of North Macedonia has talked with the Bulgarian head of state Rumen Radev. The reason is the numerous fires in Bulgaria's neighbouring country. "We have agreed as soon as possible for Bulgaria to send fire brigades to help ours in extinguishing the fires," Stevo Pendarovski wrote on Facebook.

The prime ministers of the two neighboוring countries, Stefan Yanev and Zoran Zaev, also discussed jointly dealing with the crisis over the phone.

Several fires are now raging on the territory of the Republic of North Macedonia. The most endangered is the town of Kocani, which is 65 km from the Bulgarian border. The country's army is also involved in the firefighting, and military helicopters are also used during the day, BGNES reported.
