There will be no decision on the start of accession talks with North Macedonia on November 17. I would not call this a veto, but a postponement,” said Bulgarian MEP Andrey Kovatchev, reports BGNES.
“The process is being delayed, but it all depends on Skopje. If they decide to change their mind, stop falsifying history and use hate speech, then there will be another solution. However, it is unlikely that this will happen in the coming days,” says Kovatchev.
He does not rule out the possibility of negotiations with Macedonia to begin during one of the next EU presidencies in 2021.
According to him, the Bulgarian position is the same, and since the signing of the Good Neighborliness Treaty, Macedonia has had three years to change its policy.
