 "Every day I have invitations and I talk to at least two prime ministers, one president and one EU commissioner," Radev added about bilateral relations between Bulgaria and North Macedonia.

"There is a lot of attention to Bulgaria right now, I will not say the word "pressure", but let's not forget that Bulgaria is an EU member state, and that means a lot," he said, adding that Bulgaria would turn to other EU members for solidarity.
