Former Ambassador to Macedonia: New Reading of History is One of the European Tests for Democracy

Sofia. “Macedonia’s road to EU integration inevitably passes through a serious test for democracy. This is why the new reading of history is one of the European tests for democracy”, Aleksandar Yordanov, the former Ambassador of Bulgaria to Macedonia said in an interview for FOCUS News Agency. Mr. Yordanov was commenting on the statement of the Bulgarian Foreign Minister Ivaylo Kalfin on the Bulgarian support for the Macedonian EU integration.
In relation to the reaction of the Macedonian media Yordanov said: “For us this reaction was foreseeable and it will fade away. I believe that our two countries can serve as example for international relations in the region”.
