Macedonia’s Defense Minister: Dividing Line between Macedonia and Kosovo is Technical Issue

Sofia. The dividing line between Macedonia and Kosovo is a technical issue. If we turn it into a political one we make it a problem, Macedonia’s Defense Minister Lazar Elenovski told a reporter of FOCUS News Agency after a meeting with his Bulgarian counterpart Veselin Bliznakov.
Elenovski pointed out that the dividing line would be specified in the framework of Kosovo status talks. Minister Elenovski underlined after the meeting that he hoped Bulgaria’s EU membership and support would influence Macedonia’s NATO aspirations. He also said that during the meeting plans for future joint defense initiatives between the two countries were swapped.
Minister Elenovski promised to continue cooperating for the reconstruction of the Bulgarian military cemeteries in Macedonia.
