Foreign Minister Bujar Osmani said that a proposal was sent to Bulgaria to regulate all open issues that country currently has with Macedonia’s EU bid, and that it will be made public only after Bulgaria accepts it.

Yes, there is one such document which we are prepared to accept. But until we receive a response that it is acceptable to Bulgaria as well, I don’t think the conditions will be met to inform the members of Parliament and the public. It could be rejected and it would all be for nothing, Osmani said during a press conference.

He added that Bulgaria will want to have the proposed solution accepted in their Parliament. Osmani insists that some progress was made, but that there are divisions in the Bulgarian Government, which has more hard line parties in it.

We communicate with the Bulgarian Government and do not enter in separate negotiations with different political factors there, Osmani said.
