VMRO-DPMNE asks SDS to make ‘agreement’ with Bulgaria public


In a press release, VMRO-DPMNE pointed out to nationalist statements coming from Bulgaria in the wake of the announcement that a friendship treaty will be signed in August, and again called on SDS to publish the full text of the agreement.

“The Macedonian people have the right to see the concessions Zaev made. We see Bulgarian experts jubilantly saying that the treaty puts an end to ‘Macedonianism’, and this attack is being glossed over by the SDS led institutions. Zaev announced changing our history books while Bulgarian member of the European Parliament Andrey Kovachev says that Macedonia has a fully falsified history”, VMRO-DPMNE said in its press release.

Following a meeting with Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov in Sofia, Zoran Zaev said that the treaty will be signed on the day of the Ilinden Uprising, and that Borisov will be a guest of honor in Krusevo, the site of the failed 1903 rebellion against the Ottoman Empire. One of the Bulgarian demands over the treaty, which Bulgaria raised as a condition to support Macedonia’s EU and NATO accession, is joint celebrating of what Bulgaria calls shared historic moments. Foreign Ministers from both sides ironed out details about the treaty over the weekend, but again no details were made public.

“VMRO-DPMNE supports building of good neighborly relations, based on mutual respect. VMRO-DPMNE will support all decisions that improve our relations with our neighbors, but we will not support moves that are contrary to the interests of the Macedonian people and state”, VMRO-DPMNE said in its press release.

    Yes, make it all public – Zaev the document is not your property! Nothing in there belongs to you so you can solely decide! Zaev announced changing our history books – he did not ask anybody! Anybody! Who is this guy that does not ask the PEOPLE? And who is he to sign a friendship treaty with Bulgaria? By doing this, he is saying we are not friends (already!) with Bulgaria (well are we fighting them in a war, and we need to sign a pact on peace?) No more fighting Bulgaria or what? We will not kill each other anymore?! Does he think we are in a war? So obviously this is NOT a friendship treaty, but a declaration for giving something up. Zaev sold us! I Bet the treaty says $$$.$$$ and that is why he is not publishing it. Zaev are you just Zaek (rabbit), rabbit-scared to show us how much they paid you. Or, you simply have Bulgarian roots and are afraid to admit it – but we know it 🙂 You do not have anything Macedonian in yourself. A Macedonian heart cannot do what you are doing. It is so easy for you to give up Macedonia, since you are not Macedonian. Simply be honest. IT IS OBVIOUS.
