"If we want the mafia to have no control over the state, if innovations are in focus, if we have a leading position at international level, if we are a predictable partner, then we should all agree on the things that the President said." That is what Prime Minister Kiril Petkov said about the speech of Rumen Radev after his oath for a second presidential term.

He also commented on his visit to Skopje yesterday, describing it as a "huge success". According to him, the Bulgarian visit gave a positive signal, while North Macedonia provided the long-awaited note that it has no claims to the territorial integrity of Bulgaria.
