"The balance sheet is not very positive.

Our expectations were different.

Our delegation, led by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Ivan Demerdzhiev - managed at some point to worship at the grave of Gotse Delchev.

But our expectations that Bulgarians would join us - from Bulgaria, as well as organizations of local Macedonian Bulgarians - did not materialize.

There were some breakdowns at the border, interestingly enough, they were only at the entrance to the Republic of North Macedonia.

Many of our citizens were also returned."

This was stated by the ambassador of Bulgaria in the RSM, Angel Angelov, on Nova TV.

According to him, Macedonian Bulgarians are currently living in fear.

"There is a big escalation of radical talk - mainly on social media," the TV source added.

"For months we have been insisting that the authorities and institutions in the RSM take measures. It is not possible for the faces, names and addresses of Bulgarians to appear on websites and for them to be stigmatized as not being able to live in Macedonia because they are Bulgarians", pointed out our ambassador in Skopje.
