President Ivanov calls on government to publicize Macedonia-Bulgaria agreement on good-neighborly relations

President Gjorge Ivanov called on the government Tuesday to publicize and elaborate the wording of Macedonia-Bulgaria agreement on good-neighborly relations ahead of its initialing.

Ivanov considers that the lack of transparency has provoked unfavorable comments and concern among general public, which 'should be overpowered by publicizing the document,' the President's Office said in a press release.

Macedonia's national interests should always be taken into consideration and any inter-state agreement must not jeopardize them, Ivanov says.

Yesterday, Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov presented the final version of Macedonia-Bulgaria agreement on good-neighborly relations to the President, who commend the will and efforts of all involved in coordinating the accord between the two countries.

The President will remain engaged in reconciliation and processes for settling disputes in a peaceful manner and via political dialogue in compliance with the international law and principles of good-neighborliness, which should yield just and fair solutions, based on the principles of mutual respect, support and non-interference in the internal affairs, the press release reads.
