During his visit to Resen, Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said that Bulgaria does not dispute the Macedonian identity and the Macedonian language, but that it seeks to “establish Macedonian roots”.
We, the PM said, can arrive at a solution if we think like Europeans, adding that he’s glad that Bulgaria “doesn’t have a problem with the reality of the Macedonian language and people.”
“They want to determine the past. We can do this if we’re smart and think like Europeans. We all respect the past, but are tasked with creating our future, as best we can. This is a small region, made up of small countries, but our people will benefit from standing united,” Zaev said.
