Zaharieva: Decision not to open negotiations with North Macedonia is a rude historical mistake

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Bulgaria, Ekaterina Zaharieva, said that the European Union’s decision not to open accession negotiations with North Macedonia is a rude historical mistake.

“Bulgaria said a big “Yes” on opening accession negotiations,” Zaharieva said, adding that North Macedonia deserves to start membership negotiations with the EU.

The Bulgarian Deputy PM expressed confidence that there is no one to steal Bulgarian history and that no one should worry about it.
