Bulgaria's Borisov Optimistic over Prospects of Resolving FYROM Name Dispute

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov on Wednesday expressed optimism over the prospects of a solution for FYROM's name, in exclusive statements to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) in Strasbourg, while being careful to refer to Greece's northern neighbour only by the name of its capital, Skopje.
Presenting the priorities of Bulgaria's EU presidency, Borisov expressed his support for direct talks between Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and FYROM Prime Minister Zoran Zaev. He also noted that if Tsipras and Zaev needed Bulgaria's help, he would "give it immediately".
"I support a discussion between them; I know them, if they need help I will give it immediately but the two of them must decide," he said. Bulgaria, he added, will only be pleased if there are excellent relations between Athens and Skopje, in the same way that Sofia now enjoys excellent relations with both Skopje and Athens.
