Bulgaria: World Media: Tensions between Bulgaria and North Macedonia are Decreasing GIS

Yesterday's meeting between the Prime Ministers of Bulgaria and North Macedonia Kiril Petkov and Dimitar Kovachevski in Sofia provoked reactions among international figures and media.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of France Jean-Yves Le Drian described to the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament the course of relations between Bulgaria and our western neighbor as follows:

“As far as I know, things are starting to settle down little by little. The visit of the new Bulgarian Prime Minister to Skopje helps to unblock, the declarations are in the right direction. I hope that the initiative launched will find concrete expression so that we can convene an intergovernmental conference under our presidency or, at the latest, under the Czech Presidency. But the course of events so far looks good.”
