Athens made concessions, now Skopje should follow suit – Greece’s gov’t spokesman

Greece has made concessions in the name talks and now Skopje should do what’s necessary for reaching an agreement, Greek government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos told a press briefing on Wednesday, MIA reports from Athens.

Asked about his expectations from today’s fresh round of name talks in Vienna,Tzanakopoulos reiterated Greece’s positions for possible settlement of Athens-Skopje row over Macedonia’s name, i.e. a compound name and its overall use at home and abroad (erga omnes).

‘These two preconditions for settling the dispute are logical and righteous for a mutually acceptable agreement that will bring about a solution to the problem that has been tormenting both countries for over 25 years,’ Tzanakopoulos said.
