‘I personally call on the Independent Greeks to not hamper the opportunity for our country to ensure a peaceful solution that will protect our national interests,’ Flambouraris says.

He is certain that Athens and Skopje will soon reach an agreement.

‘An agreement will be reached soon, stipulating a compound name to be used at home and abroad (erga omnes); elimination of irredentist aspirations and revision of the constitution of the neighboring country, Flambouraris says.
