Bulgarian Parliament Votes To Lift Veto On North Macedonia EU Accession


In a historic vote following the dismissal of the Prime Minister two days ago, the Parliament has voted to halt its veto power of North Macedonia’s accession to the European Union.

However, the French-led European Union was making overtures to Sofia to halt its veto, a day after Ukraine and Moldova were granted candidate status.
