North Macedonia FM Osmani says Bulgarian vote to lift veto will block EU process

The Foreign Minister of the Republic of North Macedonia Bujar Osmani stated that the Bulgarian parliament's vote to lift the veto on his country is going to affect the goodneighbour agreement with Bulgaria.

There are two words that stand between the success and failure of the European Union in the region the first is the negotiating framework protocol, and the other is opening in paragraph 6 of the Council conclusions, he wrote on Facebook, in explanation of why the Republic of North Macedonia is refusing the offer of the French presidency of the EU.

Minister Osmani explains that putting emphasis on these two issues will block the European process in the long term. The Bulgarian side has shown a lack of understanding without adducing any arguments, but we had to turn down the offer for a negotiating framework because of the sections in it, for which the Bulgarian side has shown a lack of understanding, according to the Foreign Minister of North Macedonia.
