Osmani: If the Government approves the package then we will sign the Protocol with the Bulgarian side
Minister of Foreign Affairs Bujar Osmani when asked by reporters if there is a French proposal passes to us when the bilateral protocol will be signed, answered that if the Government decides to approve the package then he as Minister of Foreign Affairs will organize an intergovernmental meeting with the Republic of Bulgaria to sign the protocol.
The package has two components, European and bilateral. The bilateral component is the protocol and is not in the European package but is bilateral with the Republic of Bulgaria but is part of this process, so that Bulgaria can give compliance to the package. The protocol has been harmonized by the MFA, but must also be approved by the Government, which will be reviewed as a whole, as we have now started this process. If the Government decides to approve the package, then I can immediately organize an intergovernmental meeting with the Republic of Bulgaria, and sign the protocol, and I think it would have coincided with the same day when the European Council will approve the negotiating framework and all that. French proposal declared Osmani
Osmani also announced that in an open and transparent manner the proposal will be presented to other relevant institutions, of course in front of the whole public./KLanmacedonia/
