Zaharieva: The identity of Macedonia starting from 1944 is based on parts of our joint history

“We never supported the European integration of Macedonia unconditionally. We stand for good-neighbor relations. Otherwise they cannot aim to be a member-state of the EU. This is not just part of the Bulgarian criteria – it’s part of the terms and conditions of the Union – good relations with the neighboring countries”, said the Minister of foreign affair Ekaterina Zaharieva.

“Long ago there were movies against Bulgaria, financed by Macedonia. In our two-sided contract we mention economy, tourism, coherence, culture, education. And now, during its second stage, we work for cheaper conversations between Macedonia and the EU. But we also stand for better trade policy. From August 1 until the end of 2017 we registered a 13% growth in the commerce. We organize joint festivals and theatres, financed by our Foreign Ministry.

Corridor 8 is amongst those with highest rate of investments. We also plan on widening the BCPs. Our goal is to travel to Skopje for 2 hours and a half. But history is quite important – we shouldn’t underestimate it. Our support for the European integration of Macedonia was never unconditional. The Treaty of Prespa is bilateral – I believe changing the name of your country isn’t an easy process, but dealing with historical issues between our two countries is way harder. The identity of Macedonia starting from 1944 is based on parts of our joint history”, continued Zaharieva. In her opinion neither hard nor soft diplomacy can deal the historical problems that actually need balance.
