Protest in Greece over name agreement with Macedonia


Hundreds gathered at a protest against the name agreement in the Greek town of Vergina on Monday, MIA reports from Athens.

Protesters, including church officials and the governor of Central Macedonia region Apostolos Tzitzikostas, waved Greek flags and shouted "Macedonia is Greek".

"If our neighbors are Macedonians, then what are we?" asked Metropolitan Panteleimon in his address before the crowd, saying the name agreement goes against the interest of the Greek people.
