The European Parliament (EP) insisted that Macedonia stop instilling hatred against its neighbor Bulgaria.

This recommendation among others was included in the 2007 Report on Macedonia's progress towards EU membership adopted by the EP on Wednesday.

The Report pays special attention to Macedonia's relations with its neighbors especially to its problems with Albania, Bulgaria, and Greece.

The part of the report regarding Macedonia's issues with Bulgaria emphasizes the need to combat hate language against neighboring states, and the urgent need to complete the Sofia-Skopie railway line, and encourages the joint initiatives on remembering the common cultural and historical heritage.

"Bulgaria should support selflessly the Republic of Macedonia but must be clear that the anti-Bulgarian campaigns aim to hinder the progress in the bilateral relations, and undermine Macedonia's progress towards EU membership", the MEP from the European People's Party and the Bulgarian GERB party Nikolay Mladenov said.

"We see that certain circles in Macedonia make consistent efforts to worse its relations with Bulgaria. We will support Macedonia's EU integration but this support will not be unconditional. Our position is in the interest of Macedonia as well", the MEP from the Party of European Socialists and the Bulgarian Socialist Party Evgeni Kirilov stated in turn.

The EP Report also recommends that the EU start talks with Macedonia for the liberalization of the visa regime, and that accession negotiations begin before the end of 2008. These acts are considered factors contributing to the stability of the Western Balkans.

The report also calls on Macedonia and Greece to resume immediately their negotiations in order to resolve the name dispute as soon as possible.

The EP report was approved with 601 MEPs voting in favor, 52 voting against, and 30 abstaining.

My dear Historian,

I spoke of Macedonia as an "independant STATEHOOD" not as a "region".

Trakia is also ONLY a region...not a country or a statehood!

"Chimps are pretty out there (having sex just for the sake of social bonding)"

Just like me, you see - I usually try to get the sex out of the way at the get go.
I mean sex is the best foundation on any inter-gender relationship;)
Take us WW - you see we still have that tense undercurrent - ever wonder why?
Huh?

"and bonobos freely accept stuff that even humans find disgusting (like incest).
Including Austrian humans?

"(with some exceptions like gorillas who are the Mormons of the great ape family)."
... because they have multiple wives?

Who are the Muslims of the Great Apes WW?
Why King Kong, of course, because all he does is brings airplanes and tall buildings down!

BTW thank you for that WW love;) We need more of it!

Actually, many of our closest relatives have all kinds of sex. Chimps are pretty out there (having sex just for the sake of social bonding) and bonobos freely accept stuff that even humans find disgusting (like incest). So, it's not a human as much as it is a great ape thing in general (with some exceptions like gorillas who are the Mormons of the great ape family).

Speaking about dogs - some of my favorite people.
Are dogs regarded as unclean and untouchable animals in the Islamic culture, my Turkish friend?

I've heard so many Arabs and general pajama wearing wife beating types, using "dog" as an insult.

As a Christian (meaning a civilized person), I happen to be very found of K9s.
They are smart and loyal and love random sex with perfect strangers, which of course is their most human side;)

That's the best part and this is no one likes Muslims - no random sex with perfect strangers;)
The difference between civilization and Islam is that between blow job and blow up.

resipsaloquitur, Macedonia is much more olden than you think. And yes the destiny of Macedonia wasn't so good, and is independent almost 20 years. But exist much more as a country much more bigger than now. But if you read some more real history you gonna see and learn about Macedonia.

When ? When Turkeys stop thinking they are the centre of the universe
