The Ministry of Internal Affairs of North Macedonia will take all necessary measures to ensure that the celebration of the anniversary of the birth of Gotse Delchev passes without incident. This was assured by the Minister of Internal Affairs of the Republic of North Macedonia Oliver Spasovski after a meeting with his Bulgarian colleague Ivan Demerdzhiev.
The Bulgarian veto on the start of negotiations for the membership of North Macedonia in the EU is expected to be the main topic of today's visit of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to Bulgaria.
He arrives in Sofia from Skopje, where he told North Macedonian Prime Minister Dimitar Kovachevski this morning that the country is ready to start EU membership talks.
Bulgaria expects effective actions from EU institutions to promote the values of democracy and respect for human rights in the Republic of North Macedonia, Bulgarian President Rumen Radev said during his meeting on Tuesday with EU Enlargement Commissioner Olivér Várhelyi. The meeting was not followed by a media briefing and Várhelyi left for Skopje later the same day.
