Kathimerini: Belgrade-Skopje row fuels concern in Athens


Greek diplomats were monitoring developments in the Balkans with concern on Monday after Serbia withdrew the entire staff of its embassy in Skopje after accusing the Republic of Macedonia of “offensive activity” in apparent anger at its neighbour’s improving relations with Kosovo, a former Serbian province, Greek daily Kathimerini reads.

Daily reads that the dispute comes as Skopje is seeking to revive its bid for accession to the European Union and NATO following a period of political upheaval.

Prime Minister Zoran Zaev formed a coalition government in June almost six months after elections. Greece insists that a dispute with “FYROM” over its official name must be resolved before the Balkan state can join international alliances, Kathimerini reads.
