We expect that our allies and our friends will help the region and not harm it, Including our ally Bulgaria, Macedonia’s Defense Minister RadmilaShekerinska responded to the announcement from her Bulgarian counterpart KrasimiarKarakachanov that Bulgaria will postpone the opening of EU accession talks for Macedonia as not enough concession have been made on national identity issues. Shekerinska said that Karakachanov’s comment is not helpful.
“Emotions are not a good ally when we work to resolve bilateral issues. We showed that we can be friends with all our neighbors and that we invest in a relationship of allies. We expect that our allies and our friends will help the region and not harm it,” Shekerinska said.
