During a parliamentary hearing, Minister of Foreign Affairs Teodora Genchovska said that Prime Minister Kiril Petkov had proposed an overhaul of Bulgaria's Framework Position on North Macedonia.
"It gave the impression that Bulgaria was ready for some concessions." However, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs have rejected it.
The prime minister has taken a commitment by the end of the French presidency to override the veto so that Skopje can start negotiations with the EU. This happened at a meeting with EU Commissioner Olivér Várhelyi, the minister said, adding that the meeting was documented in a memo.
Negotiations with Skopje have marked progress but there are issues that remain open, Minister Genchovska said.
Heated procedural disputes on whether confidential documents should be read took place in the National Assembly. The opposition accused the majority of hiding agreements made by the prime minister. /BGNES
