Bulgaria: Gazprom Officials to Discuss 'Macedonian' South Stream Section Photo by BGNES

Experts from Russian state-owned Gazprom are to visit Macedonia's capital Skopje for talks over the construction of a South Stream gas pipeline section.

The agreement to "fork" the pipeline's route, which was signed on July 23 last year, will be further elaborated after detailed analyses are conducted to determine the route, construction price and terms and conditions of gas supplies, Macedonian newspaper Kurir has announced.

A joint venture is expected to be formed to deal with issues regarding the "Macedonian" South Stream Branch.

The visit by Gazprom representatives comes at a time when timing and other aspects of the South Stream pipeline project are put into question by the possibility of EU-imposed sanctions on Russia over the Crimean standoff.

Most European countries involved in the South Stream pipeline have, however, have shown commitment to go on with the project.

Yeah we know, there are no Greeks, only Greeks, Hellenized Albanians, Vlachs, "Macedonians" and so on.
And of course, there are no Bulgarians, only broken-"Macedonian"-speaking Tatars
Interesting though that Bulgarians don't speak Macedonian, as attested in Pella tablets and Hesychius glossary but only a Slavic language. Which is the real Macedonian, the ancient or the one FYROMians have passed on to the Tatars?
Keep up the "good"-neighborly utterings! They will prove especially good for western FYROM

If "Greeks"cherish ancient history,today we would not have the fabricated name game.
Follow Socrates,Demosthenes,and of course analyze what Alexander the Macedon said to Philotas at his trial in Asia.
Maybe,just maybe,you fellows will come to term with the reality in the 21st century.

And the men of Athens said to the ambassador of Xerxes, "As long as the sun moves across the sky, the men of Athens will fight you." Is it worth betraying your cultural heritage?
