Bulgaria, Macedinia to exchange classified information

Date: 28.09.2005

In the presence of Bulgarian Prime Minister Sergey Stanishev and his Macedonian counterpart Vlado Buchkovski, the two countries signed a contract for exchange of classified information between their governments.

The countries will have to protect the information that they receive in accordance with the contract and that has been labeled top secret by their partner.

This agreement is yet another step towards cooperation between Bulgaria and Macedonia, which is an important stability factor in South-Eastern Europe, Stanishev commented.

During the talks between the two ministers, Bulgaria underlined its position in favor of Macedonia's European and Euro-Atlantic advances. Bulgaria supports NATO's "open doors" policy, Stanishev said, and expects Macedonia's future membership in the Alliance. The country is Macedonia's faithful partner in the integration processes that would strengthen the cooperation between neighbours and stabilize South-Eastern Europe, he added.

The countries also discussed their cooperation in the sphere of economics, happily noting that a lot of Bulgarian companies are interested in investing in Macedonia.

The closer Macedonia is to NATO membership, the more modern and integrated the bilateral relations with Bulgaria become, Buchkovski said. He added that this is the reason why Macedonia is hoping for Bulgaria to join the EU in 2007, as this makes his country's goal of European integration more attainable.

Buchkovski announced that he believed that someday Bulgaria would be Macedonia's warranty for full-flagged membership in NATO and the EU.
