Am I optimistic? I am always optimistic, but in the case of Bulgaria somehow things seem to go into a hopeless situation. When I say hopeless situation here, I mean first of all the lack of strategy by the Government and the authorities that lead those negotiations. What is important for the Macedonian people to know is that whatever happens in June at the European Council when it is decided whether Bulgaria will lift the veto or withdraw from the veto is that the biggest betrayal prepared by this Government will not culminates in the start of negotiations. But why? Because there will be conditions in that negotiating framework, if the Government in Sofia decides to withdraw from the veto. And one of those conditions is the opening of the Constitution, said the leader of VMRO-DPMNE Hristijan Mickoski during his visit to Karbinci.
Mickoski added that two thirds of the MPs’ votes are needed to open the Constitution.
“I was quite clear and I will repeat the position of VMRO-DPMNE there is no opening of the Constitution until we get a clear guarantee from the Bulgarian Parliament that if the Constitution is opened and closed in Macedonia it means that in this way all open issues between Macedonia and Bulgaria are closed. And that until Macedonia is part of the EU we will not have more additional demands from our eastern neighbor. Only under those conditions can we talk,” Mickoski stressed.
