Bozhidar Dimitrov cancels visit to Macedonia

BULGARIA

Bulgarian Minister without portfolio Bozhidar Dimitrov will not visit Macedonia today, Macedonian Dnevnik newspaper writes. Instead of coming to the town of Prilep, where he was supposed to attend the inauguration of the restored Bulgarian-German cemetery, Dimitrov will go to a festival of arts in Bulgarian coastal town of Sozopol.

“Recently Dimitrov declared he will visit Prilep but will not meet with Macedonian state officials. According to unofficial information the visit was canceled because of Bulgarian government’s intention not to strain the relations with Macedonia even further over the Spaska Mitrova case. Dimitrov is popular with his theses about the Bulgarian character of the Macedonian nation and recently announced that there are 1.4 million Bulgarians living in Macedonia”
