It is important for all of us as the EU – and this includes Bulgaria – to keep our promise to Macedonia and Albania. We are ready to support that process, but for the most part it is a bilateral process. I think the priority for the new Bulgarian government is to continue with its own reform agenda and that there is a desire to leave history to historians, German Minister of State for Europe Anna Lührmann said in an interview with Deutsche Welle.
Concerning Skopje and Bulgaria’s veto, the MEP says:
“We are ready to support the processes that must happen, but it is primarily a bilateral process and I believe that one of the priorities of the new Bulgarian government is to move forward with its own reform agenda. There is a great desire for history to be left to historians,” Lührmann said.
