Macedonia’s Special Envoy for resolving the dispute between the authorities in Skopje and Sofia Vlado Buchkovski believes that Bulgaria will lift the blockade on the start of EU membership talks in the coming months, BGNES reports.
“In 2021, Bulgaria did not have a regular government for eight months. There were three parliamentary and one presidential elections in the country. This has seriously affected our efforts to find a mutually acceptable solution and to lift the blockade on our road to the EU. In 2022, I expect a mutually acceptable solution to be reached with Bulgaria. A solution that will be based on mutual respect and will be maintained. The Bulgarian blockade will be lifted. The start of accession talks with the EU will finally be a reality,” Buchkovski said.
