albpaion Kosovo is Albanian, Preshevo also, 30% of Macedonia ... Eastern Servia is Bulgarian, 70 % of Macedonia also. Prespa, Golo Bardo... wil stay Albanian. We have to make coridor number 8 from my city Varna to Vlore... If u don't make problems with Bulgarians in Macedonia, Albania, and Kosovo u will join EU. It's very simple !
I always get pissed off when I see some Bulgarians who perceive Serbs as friends or even worst, as brothers of the same faith. That's disgusting! Has Bulgaria ever benefited from Serbia? Historically it's known that Bulgaria lost much of its territory because of Serbs. They were so unscrupulous as to attack Bugarians behind their neck.
Historically, Bulgaria has been betrayed by Serbia on several occasions.
Thing is, culturally, linguistically, and spiritually Bulgarians and Serbians have a lot in common. Hence the notions of 'Slavic Orthodox Brothers'.. but in my opinion all that is BS as there still seem to be anti-Bulgarian notions looming about among a good chunk of Serbs. True, all this is due to anti-Bulgarian politics but at the same time for the past 100 years Serbia seems to have been all about anti-Everyone politics.
Anyway, I would accept any man who respects my people and my country as my brother. And to be completely honest, I know of a whole lot more Serbs disrespecting Bulgaria than I do Albanians. Actually, I don't really know of any Albanians disrespecting Bulgaria..
Bulgaria recognized Kosovo, and I think that this was the right move. Ironically, I think that an independent Kosovo can be beneficial for Serbia itself.
Having said that, to me as a proud Bulgarian, it really comes down to preserving the Bulgarian identity and all things Bulgarian. Albanian support for Bulgarian minorities would go a long way, while on the other hand, Serbia is still involved in suppressing/concealing all things Bulgarian.
But the vast majority of the population of Macedonia are Bulgars; up to the time of the first Balkan War no intelligent Greek or Serbian or Rumanian ever denied this.
