Dimitar Kovacevski has been Prime Minister of RS Macedonia for a week, and spent four of those eight days with the Bulgarian Government. This indicates a desire to get the job done, he said Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov, who today at the request of the GERB party answers questions about the meetings with Prime Minister Kovacevski, announced BGNES.

- The ministers who came to Bulgaria were in huge numbers and we made great progress in many areas. We signed three memoranda, which were in many key areas, including Corridor 8. It was dropped from the list of European projects, if we want to include it will happen with joint work, said Petkov.

He said that during the talks on the economy and infrastructure, the two sides also discussed topics that are important for Bulgaria - the rights of Bulgarians in RS Macedonia and the framework position.

- Kovacevski said that he sees no problem with the inclusion of Bulgarians in RS Macedonia in their Constitution. He did not commit to time, said Petkov.

According to him, there are many declarations from both sides, but the real work is not done.

- We organized a calendar for meetings every seven days. I am glad that even the Historical Commission has confirmed that they will have three meetings in the coming months. I do not intend to change any member of the Historical Commission. "I think we have done a good job these two weeks," Petkov said.

On February 4, Bulgaria and Northern Macedonia are preparing a joint celebration of Goce Delchev on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his birth, announced the Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov in the National Assembly.
