Bulgaria is working in favour of the FYROM's getting a positive signal from NATO's summit in Riga, Solomon Passy, chair of Bulgaria's foreign policy parliamentary commission and the country's former Foreign Minister said for Utrinski newspaper.
We really hope the Adriatic states - the FYROM, Croatia, and Albania, will get encouraging signals, Passy said.
The reform of the FYROM's armed forces is going well, so is the professionalisation of the army, he added.
It is very important that each candidate-member state provides for itself the maximal support of all countries that are already members of the Alliance, he noted.
I would like to stress out that the voice of the neighbours always weighs more, Passy concluded.
