There are external factors that do not want Bulgaria and North Macedonia to be in good relations. These are the people who do not want RNM to be part of the European Union. These are the people who don’t want our country to have an influence, because the veto means that Bulgaria has no friends in the Balkans, in the EU, MEP Ilhan Kyuchyuk told BTV.
The MEP is categorical that they must insist on the rule of law and high democratic standards in North Macedonia.
“As long as the rights of the people who identify as Bulgarians are not recognized, the tension will continue, says Kyuchyuk. According to the MEP, all attempts to reduce tensions should be encouraged, and this applies not only to the Bulgarian state, but also to Skopje.
