This feud between Macedonia and Bulgaria will never end, just like all the other conflicts between ongoing conflicting neighbouring countries. There is a deeply imbedded hate that can only be glossed over with politics, but even the politics is produces comments, which amount to be snide remarks. Sometime the conflicts between two countries that have a similar lifestyle and ways are more deeply rooted than widely different cultures and religions.
A couple of days ago the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry summoned for an informative talk Mrs. Divna Trickovska, chargé d'affaires of the Macedonian Embassy to Bulgaria. The Bulgarian authorities handed to Trickovska a protest note over the case of Spaska Mitrova from Gevgelija, sentenced to three-month imprisonment over family issues.
Macedonian politicians and historians judged that Bulgaria will strain its policy towards Macedonia, especially as “the popular negationist of the Macedonian nation” Bozhidar Dimitrov was elected minister for the diaspora. Experts in Macedonian-Bulgarian relations think that Dimitrov will start making intrigues to create an impression that Macedonia chases away the Bulgarians and the Macedonian media spread hatred, which could make Bulgaria impose veto on Macedonia’s accession to the EU, Nova Makedonija says.
