US Senator Cardin: Greece should be decisive factor for resolving open issue with Macedonia


Greece should not support destabilization trends in the region but  be a decisive factor for settling the open issue with Macedonia, US Senator Benjamin Cardin said late Monday at a debate of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington.

Cardin said he wished for the Athens-Skopje name negotiations to yield result, MIA correspondent reports from Washington.

‘I’m aware that this is a challenge for both Macedonia and Greece. However a settlement of the (name) issue would be rather beneficial for the region,’ Senator Cardin said.  

The CSIS debate, dubbed ‘Four Years of Sanctions: Assessing the Impact on the Russian Economy and Foreign Policy’, also tackled the Western Balkans, namely the diplomatic attempts of official Moscow to prevent the countries of the region to join NATO.
