A regular annual meeting of EU and regional interior ministers will be held today, which is expected to be crucial for migration issues, given the importance of the Balkan route for asylum seekers.
Last month, the Union presented the new EU Asylum and Migration Pact in the hope of overcoming existing disagreements between EU member states on building a common European asylum and migration policy.
But what is important for Macedonia is whether Bulgaria will lift the blockade and allow the signing of the agreement with Frontex in Macedonian. Bulgaria is the only country that opposes the signing of the agreement.
According to Factor.bg, the Macedonian language is the only reason why Macedonia cannot sign the agreement. A spokesperson for the European Commission confirmed that for the portal.
