Bulgaria welcomes July 15 agreement in Macedonia

Bulgaria’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on July 17 that it welcomed the agreement achieved two days earlier among the main political party leaders in Macedonia.

“This is an important initial step in the process that should lead to permanently overcoming the political crisis and the challenges facing the Republic of Macedonia,” Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry said.

The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry noted that the agreement was brokered by the European Union institutions. The European Commission will continue to monitor in the coming months the full implementation of its recommendations for essential reforms in the rule of law in Macedonia.

“Bulgaria is ready to support the political leaders in Macedonia regarding the implementation of agreements reached by them,” the Foreign Ministry said.
