After the meeting of the Coalition Council which lasted for more than three hours on the evening of May 27, Bulgaria's ruling coalition had a very constructive dialogue on the topic of the Republic of North Macedonia, reaffirming its promise that the topic must pass through the National Assembly. 

No talks have yet taken place between Prime Minister Kiril Petkov and President Rumen Radev on convening the Consultative National Security Council, but the two are in dialogue and broad public support will be sought for each step, said Prime Minister Petkov's head of office Lena Borislavova. 

Borislavova also pointed out that the topic of updating the budget was discussed at the Coalition Council and it was agreed that it would enter the first reading in parliament in early June. It will include anti-crisis measures.
