All Bulgarians know that in the long run North Macedonia must be part of the European Union. Everyone knows that the rights of Bulgarians in North Macedonia must be protected, Premier Kiril Petkov said in an interview for Nova TV. "We should get rid of this political rhetoric and work. I expect Skopje to establish some kind of an institution with their government for the rights of Bulgarians in North Macedonia", Bulgaria’s Prime Minister further said.

Kiril Petkov was adamant that the Bularian government would not take any action without the country‘s National Assembly. "We will fully protect the Bulgarian interest, but Bulgaria‘s long-term interest coincides with the long-term interest of North Macedonia. Nobody wants their neighbor to be poor, with close borders and outside the EU. The veto on North Macedonia will be lifted when we do our job”, added Premeir Petkov.
