Kiril Petkov is a non-traditional politician with a non-standard vocabulary who does not use rhetoric known from previous times. A technocrat and optimist, the only such optimist in politics I know is Zoran Zaev. This was stated in an interview with Macedonian Television 24 by the President of the Republic of North Macedonia, Stevo Pendarovski.
Currently, our country is in negotiations with Bulgaria, which are based on European values and respect all adopted resolutions. This was said by the newly elected leader of the ruling Social Democratic Union in RN Macedonia, Dimitar Kovachevski, during his first public statement. He replaces Zoran Zaev, who has held the post since 2013, BGNES reported.
