Bulgaria adopted this Friday a resolution endorsing the proposal of French President Emmanuel Macron on resolving the deadlock with North Macedonia.

170 MPs voted in favor, 37 against and 21 abstained, reports Euronews Bulgaria.

The French proposal contains several points:

  • Bulgarian minority must be included in the Constitution of North Macedonia
  • Protection of the rights and interests of minorities in North Macedonia
  • Compliance with previous bilateral treaties with EU countries – the Prespa agreement with Greece and the Treaty of Friendship, Neighbourhood and Cooperation with Bulgaria.
  • Nothing in the accession process should be interpreted as acceptance of the Macedonian language by Bulgaria

Meanwhile, after the EU summit in Brussel, the Prime Minister of North Macedonia reiterated his stance against Macron’s proposal.

According to Kovacevski, Bulgaria’s decision to keep the veto implies that it intends to return to the past.
