EP Urges FYROM to cooperate with Bulgaria education

The European Parliament has urged the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to create a joint expert committee with Bulgaria to tackle the sensitive issue of history education in the country.

The committee’s task will be to further the objective interpretation of historical events, increase the cooperation in the academic field and improve the attitudes youngsters have towards their neighbors, the European Parliament has explained.

It was Bulgarian MEP from the Group of Socialists and Democrats Evgeni Kirilov who came up with the proposal for a joint expert committee. Kirilov’s proposal was included in the amendments to the draft resolution on Macedonia’s progress that was passed by the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs on Tuesday.
