Macedonian Prime Minister Dimitar Kovachevski condemned yesterday’s statement by the Bulgarian MP and leader of the Rebirth political party, Kostadin Kostadinov, who, at the opening of the Bulgarian Cultural Center in Skopje, made a statement in which he said that “Macedonia is the second Bulgarian state”.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reacted immediately, and the Minister of Culture also condemned it. I also want to condemn him. It is really inappropriate for a person who has come as a guest in this country to behave in such a way. Yesterday we had the act of opening a Bulgarian cultural center as it appears in Skopje with the minister of culture coming, with our minister of culture, in the same way as I said that we will also open a Macedonian cultural center in Blagoevgrad as we have opened and in Sofia,” Kovachevski said during his visit to a factory in Shtip on Saturday.
Such politicians are not at all welcome in our country, added PM Kovachevski.
