Bulgaria: Bulgaria Offers Macedonia All-out Friendship Treaty

Bulgaria has offered Macedonia a draft treaty for good neighborliness and friendship, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Vesela Cherneva has announced.

The Macedonian government in Skopje is still mulling over the proposal, she explained.

The draft document provides for cooperation in a number of spheres including economy, infrastructure, energy projects, and fighting organized crime. A key item is focusing on eliminating hate language with respect to one another.

She has pointed out that the dragging case for the custody of the child of Spaska Mitrova, a Macedonian with Bulgarian passport who spent some two months in a Macedonian prison in 2009 over a sentence for allegedly failing to meet her divorce commitments, will not be politicized, and will be considered strictly legally.

Cherneva also said Tuesday that the Bulgarian government is going to reconsider its policies with regard to the Western Balkans.

During their recent visit to Brussels, Bulgaria’s President and Foreign Minister suggested to the EU Council President Van Rompuy and EC President Barroso that Bulgaria should become an EU coordination center for the integration of the Western Balkans.
