President Stevo Pendarovski declined questions from the press to comment on the shocking interview Zoran Zaev gave for the Bulgarian BGNES news site.

On top of his claims that Bulgaria was not an occupier but merely an administrator in World War Two, and the blurring of lines between the two nations, Zaev also personally offended Pendarovski, saying that he is an inexperienced politician, unlike himself (Zaev).

President Pendarovski will not comment the positions made by Prime Minister Zoran Zaev in this interview, Pendarovski’s office told the Voice of America when asked about a comment.
