The bodies of the Macedonian nationals who died in the tragic bus accident in Bulgaria will be handed over to their families on Thursday or Friday at the latest, Minister of Foreign Affairs Bujar Osmani said on Monday.

The Bulgarian Government accepted our request for the transfer from Sofia to Skopje to be made by a Bulgarian plane, while from Skopje International Airport, through an organized state protocol, the same or the next day the remains will be handed over to the families in their homes. I remain in close communication with the families. For the other details the public will be informed in a timely manner as well, says Osmani.
