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.

Bulgaria invoked its veto power on negotiations with would-be members in 2020 to block North Macedonia’s candidacy based on accusations that the Macedonian language was simply Bulgarian by another name and Skopje was disrespecting its shared cultural and historic ties to Bulgarians. 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.
