Skopje does not need good neighborliness agreement with Sofia, says FM

A good neighborliness agreement between Skopje and Sofia is not necessary, Macedonian Foreign Minister Nikola Poposki said recently.

“I believe it is not necessary. Good neighborliness cannot be created on paper, but with specific gestures and I think Bulgaria and Macedonia have a very good ground for excellent relations. This exists between the people even now. The agreement is an issue raised by Bulgaria as an absolute necessity. I personally think it is better not to work out an agreement, rather than having one that will create extra problems,” said Minister Poposki.
“What we agreed for a working group between the two ministries to sit down and discuss what is problematic and what is not and suggest solutions to the problems,” he concluded.
