Borissov: I expect Bulgaria and North Macedonia to maintain good-neighborly relations

I expect Bulgaria and North Macedonia to maintain good-neighborly relations, said Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borissov at the Plovdiv Economic Forum on Wednesday.

PM Borissov expressed hope that the coming meeting of the Berlin Process in Poznan will take a decision that North Macedonia and Bulgaria jointly host the next summit.

“We have been at war with all neighbors throughout history and the Balkans has fallen behind as a result. Now we have changed things. I hope all difficulties will be overcome,” said PM Borissov.

The Plovdiv Economic Forum brings together representatives of governments, businesses and NGOs from numerous European countries, focusing on the challenges related to economic growth and the competitiveness of Bulgaria and Southeast Europe.
