I want it to be crystal clear – the protocol is actually the minutes of a meeting between the ministries of foreign affairs, a bilateral document that does not condition the negotiating framework. In fact, the protocol is not even mentioned in the negotiating framework. Moreover, the protocol is not binding and does not condition the start of negotiations. I urge not to speculate about the content and the importance of this document”, says the Prime Minister of RNM Dimitar Kovachevski in an interview with MIA news agency.
The Prime Minister says that what is important to know about the protocol is that it is done on the basis of reciprocity.
The obligations or tasks that we and Bulgaria will set ourselves as two countries, bilaterally, they apply to both sides. No one has a mandate to accept unilateral requests, nor can they act on them, Kovachevski adds.
