EU to keep talking with Bulgaria until enlargement spat solved, Borrell says

The European Commission will continue to speak with Bulgaria in order to obtain Bulgaria’s approval for North Macedonia’s admission to the EU, said the EU’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, on Monday.

“We will keep talking (with Bulgaria) until this issue is resolved,” he told reporters during a visit to Skopje, the capital of North Macedonia, adding that the atmosphere between the two governments had improved.

Borrell emphasized that bilateral issues can no longer determine the course of an accession process.
