Last night, the Central Committee (CC) of VMRO-DPMNE decided that the party will not support the agreement on good neighborly relations with Bulgaria in the Parliament of the Republic of Macedonia, VMRO-DPMNE announced today.

The statement said that it is good to sign a good neighborly agreement with Bulgaria, in order to strengthen the cooperation and friendship between the countries, and of course, because of Bulgaria’s announcement that they would support Macedonia’s path to full membership in NATO and the European Union, however, not under the current terms and conditions which are specified in the text of the agreement.

“If things remain the way they are, the Central Committee of VMRO-DPMNE concluded that despite the great desire and sincere will, VMRO-DPMNE will not be able to support this agreement in the Parliament of the Republic of Macedonia. Under the current provisions of this agreement, perhaps not immediately, but after a year and a half of its signing, at the time of its implementation, Macedonia will face serious problems, whose resolution will be at the expense of Macedonia. Under such conditions, VMRO-DPMNE does not want to share the responsibility that SDSM will have in front of the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia and the Macedonian people, a situation when SDS goes directly against the will of the majority of the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia”, reads the press release.
