The government of Prime Minister Dimitar Kovacevski is ready to accept the most hardline Bulgarian demands, Nikola Dimitrov, former Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister for EU integration, said at a press conference.

Dimitrov also claimed that “many international friends” wanted to see him named as Prime Minister after Zaev resigned. “That is no secret, many international friends called me to support me in taking over the Government,” he said.

“We have clear national positions in the talks with Bulgaria and a Parliament resolution supported by all parties”, SDSM leader and PM-designate Dimitar Kovacevski said following Dimitrov’s press conference.

“My impression is that it is a matter of expressed personal dissatisfaction with the end of his participation in the Government. What he is saying is not true at all,” said Kovačevski.
