Question for written answer  E-006807/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138

 Subject: Bulgaria and opening of negotiations with North Macedonia

For several weeks, and in particular on Tuesday 17 November 2020, Bulgaria has declared its opposition as things stand to the opening of accession negotiations with North Macedonia(1).

The dispute between the two parties concerns cultural issues relating to the Macedonian language and to the nationality of the hero Goce Delčev.

It is noteworthy that according to a recent survey, 84% of Bulgarians questioned are opposed to their country supporting the accession of North Macedonia as things stand(2).

1. In view of this consensus of the Bulgarian population and of the depth of the disagreements between the two States, how does the Commission hope to achieve the opening of accession negotiations?

2. Does not this situation, which reflects the ethnic and national antagonisms that persist in the Balkan region, demonstrate that the process of enlargement to the Western Balkans is destined to fail?

(2)‘Bulgarian public opinion supports this position: 79% of them believe that Skopje, by not recognising the Bulgarian origins of the Macedonian population, is guilty of “Manipulation of historical facts”; and 84% are against Bulgaria supporting North Macedonia’s accession to the EU before reaching a compromise on the interpretation of history.’ https://alkhaleejtoday.co/international/5393786/Linguistic-quarrel-disputed-hero-%E2%80%A6-why-Bulgaria-hinders-North-Macedonia%E2%80%99s-march.html
