Greek Foreign Minister Issues Fresh Macedonia Accusations

Macedonia used disproportionate means to deal with the refugees and violated the international law on multiple counts, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias has said.

In an interview with Athens daily "Efimerida ton Syntakton", Kotzias says Greece has recommended that Macedonia reflects on what it is doing and the consequence this will have for its future relations with the European institutional system.

"Also bearing responsibility are those EU member states which, despite their presence in Macedonia, did not avert this conduct", Kotzias adds.

According to him, Greece is dealing with such matters soberly and responsibly.

"Those who think we will stop taking initiatives and exercising a proactive foreign policy are fools. Those who can’t bear the difficulties of foreign policy and lose their composure need to take a good look at themselves", stresses Kotzias.

He says Thessaloniki will host on April 21-­22 a quadrilateral meeting on cross­border cooperation with the foreign and interior ministers of Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania.
