The diplomatic relations between Bulgaria and Macedonia were constantly improving, President Georgi Purvanov said in an interview for Macedonian Radio Skopje.
All institutions in the two countries were co-operating and results in economy and cultural exchange were already noticeable, said Purvanov.
Further developments were needed in a number of economic sectors, said Purvanov. More communication was needed in the border regions, said he.
Bulgaria could also aid Macedonia in its attempts to achieve NATO and EU membership, said Purvanov as quoted by Bulgarian National Radio.
Purvanov said that during the last NATO summit in Istanbul he called for the recent acceptance of Macedonia to the alliance.
The same message would be repeated in the upcoming NATO summit in Riga, said Purvanov.
Bulgaria could also aid Macedonia with its knowledge and experience in the accession process, said he.
