I cannot be at the same table with people who have anti-Bulgarian and anti-European manifestations, said the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria Maria Gabriel, Bulgarian media reports.

Gabriel commented on his participation in the OSCE meeting in Skopje. She visited RS Macedonia for a few hours and left before the arrival of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

"I was in Skopje to honor the chairmanship of the OSCE. "Also, there was a dinner of European leaders where each of us had to declare that we are there because we do not want to sign the death of the OSCE," said Gabriel.

"After this dinner, I don't think my presence should have been physical there, so I left." "I don't want to be present with representatives of a country that has declared us enemies," said Gabriel.
