FYROM: Bulgarian President Radev comments the issue of name dispute

The country’s new name should not contain a geographical element which would damage Bulgaria, was declared today in Skopje by the Bulgarian president, Rumen Radev, who was asked about the name contest between FYROM and Greece.

“We back the solution of the name contest between Skopje and Athens. Our position is clear: the solution of the name contest should not contain any geographical elements which in itself, hints at territorial parts belonging to Bulgaria”, said Radev in the press conference delivered with president George Ivanov.

Radev said that he is confident that solution will be found which will be acceptable for both Skopje and Athens, but according to him, this solution should not affect third parties.

On the other hand, Ivanov said that FYROM will do everything to find a solution which will not affect third parties. /balkaneu.com/
