Bulgaria can serve as an example of ethnic tolerance, Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said on Monday in comments on last week’s clashes in neighbouring Macedonia that left at least 22 people dead.

Bulgaria needs calm, ethnic tolerance and peace,” Borisov told bTV station.

“What happened in Kumanovo is yet another very good example… In Kumanovo, in Macedonia they underestimated this problem and a lot of people died”.

He added the Bulgarian authorities are closely following developments in Macedonia and exercise greater caution in their comments about the clashes in Kumanovo.

Borisov also said ethnic tolerance in Bulgaria must be maintained as “there is nothing worse than civil war”.
