[Ticker] Bulgarian MPs set conditions for lifting enlargement veto

These include amending the constitution to mention a Bulgarian minority and concessions on the historical origins of the Macedonian language. The parliament in Skopje will also have to vote on the deal, if prime minister Dimitar Kovačevski calls a vote.
