Bulgarian Prime Minister cancels meeting with Macedonian President


The press office of the Bulgarian government confirmed that the Thursday meetings of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva with the visiting Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov have been cancelled.

“We don’t want to interfere in the home affairs of our neighbour [Macedonia]. Our position [on the solution to the Macedonia-Greece name dispute] is clear and principled, as is that of the entire international community. The position of the President of the Republic of Macedonia is equally clear. The Bulgarian government sees no point in being used in the internal politics debates of Skopje,” said the government press office, BTA reports.

President Gjorge Ivanov arrived on an official visit to Bulgaria Thursday morning at the invitation of President Rumen Radev.
