President Ivanov responds to Borissov

With this gesture, Borissov takes sides, said Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov, who is on a two-day official visit to Bulgaria.

Ivanov, among other things, was to meet with the Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov. But Borissov, canceled the meeting at the last minute.

That’s his decision and his responsibility. With this gesture, he takes sides. Borissov is not only prime minister of Bulgaria but he also is EU chairman. The European Union calls for dialogue, and someone is running away from it, President Ivanov said, answering a journalist question about Borissov canceling the meeting.
