Macedonia will launch the construction of a railroad track leading to the country's border with Bulgaria in 2013, Macedonian Transport Minister Mile Janakieski has announced.
The reconstruction of the railroad track will be launched at the beginning of 2013, the Bulgarian BGNES informs.
"All research has been carried out...The project is coordinated with the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development," Janakieski has clarified.
The two Balkan neighboring countries are not connected with a railroad track, an unusual circumstance based mainly on the complicated relations between Bulgaria and Serbia over the 20th century. Macedonia has been treated as the two Balkan states' "apple of discord".
The potential construction of a railroad connection between Bulgaria and Macedonia has been mentioned numerous times since the dissolution of Yugoslavia in 1991, but no concrete results have been achieved.
