The Prime Minister of the Republic of Bulgaria and the Minister of Finance canceled the meeting with the Macedonian President
The press office of the Bulgarian government confirmed that the Thursday meetings of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva with the visiting Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov have been cancelled. "We don't want to interfere in the home affairs of our neighbour [Macedonia]. Our position [on the solution to the Macedonia-Greece name dispute] is clear and principled, as is that of the entire international community. The position of the President of the Republic of Macedonia is equally clear. The Bulgarian government sees no point in being used in the internal political debates of Skopje," said the government press office.
