Kotzias: Neighbors must show ‘seriousness’

Political leaders in the neighboring country should understand that parties cannot negotiate through interviews and public statements, said Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias Monday in Luxembourg.

He attended a Foreign Affairs Council meeting of the EU, where developments in Syria, the Iran nuclear program and the prospects for EU accession of Western Balkan countries were discussed, MIA reports from Athens. The Minister also referred to the course of the negotiations ongoing with Macedonia and Albania.

“It is necessary for FYROM’s leaders to understand that negotiations cannot be held through interviews and constant public statements. They must show seriousness and accept a method that would lead us to a resolution,” FM Kotzias noted.
