VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski announced that VMRO-DPMNE will never negotiate the identity, and if Bulgaria continues with its current set of demands, Macedonia would have to abandon the 2017 Zaev – Borissov Treaty and seek a new one.
“I will ask for a clear declaration that we will not negotiate on the uniqueness of the Macedonian language, identity and history. And if Bulgaria continues to demands these concessions, for us the Treaty with Bulgaria will be dead. A treaty like this one should offer future, not past. This Treaty does not offer future,” Mickoski said during his interview with MRTV.
