Macedonia must put to an end "the anti-Bulgarian campaign" supported by its government, stated Bulgarian Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikolay Mladenov Saturday.

Speaking for Darik Radio, Mladenov continued a string of harsh remarks by himself and Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev, requesting more co-operation from Macedonia if the country wants Bulgarian support for its EU bid.

"The anti-Bulgarian campaign in Macedonia creates an infinite discomfort in Bulgarian public opinion," commented Mladenov.

"Only after this stops will Bulgaria agree with Macedonia's accession to the European Union," added the Foreign Affairs Minister.

Mladenov stressed that both Macedonia and Bulgaria are obliged to abide by the declaration of good will they signed in 1999.

"The development depends solely on Skopje. They know what we expect, but we have not seen any progress," added he.
