Bulgaria-North Macedonia joint commission goes back to discussing Tsar Samuel

The joint Bulgaria-North Macedonia commission on historical issues is holding an online meeting on 22 and 23 April.

It is the second meeting for 2021 and the 13th since the joint commission was set up after the Good Neighbour and Friendship Agreement was signed by the two countries in 2017. Throughout most of 2020 the commission did not hold meetings..

The historians from the two countries will once again be discussing the question of Tsar Samuel, BGNES reports. Around two years ago the experts from Bulgaria and North Macedonia had reached partial consensus that Tsar Samuel was heir to the Bulgarian royal dynasty and reigned over the Bulgarian kingdom at the end of the 10th and the beginning of the 11th century. /BGNES
