Georgi Parvanov, President (2002-2012): The name Ilinden Macedonia shows Skopje’s tendency to pass the problem on to someone else

Sofia. The name Republic of Ilinden Macedonia shows Skopje’s tendency to pass the problem on to someone else, Georgi Parvanov, Bulgarian President in 2002-2012 and founder of political party ABV, told a press conference, Focus News Agency reports. He urged for a Bulgarian response because Macedonia was attempting to solve its problems with Greece at the expense of Bulgaria. In his opinion, the proposed name might partly appease someone in Greece because it represented a retreat from the idea of the ancient root of Macedonians. For Bulgaria, relatively acceptable are the names of Vardar and New Macedonia, he said. Georgi Parvanov declared ABV’s support for Macedonia to join NATO and the EU, but not at the expense of Bulgaria.
