Bulgaria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs is aware of all the proposals of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the ministry said in response to an inquiry. From there, they specify that the actions of the Bulgarian institutions cannot go beyond the framework created by the parliamentary decision of June 24 of this year in connection with the enlargement of the EU and the negotiation process of the Republic of North Macedonia. 

"In the neighbouring country, there is currently a procedure for accepting the proposal of the French presidency, and possible speculations on this issue in Bulgaria could have a negative impact on the processes there," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs also stated. 

Meanwhile, the Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration of the RSM Bojan Maricic announced that the document presented by the French presidency did not include the bilateral protocol, and this, in his words, means that his country's expectation that the historical issues will be removed has been fulfilled.
