Papadimoulis: If you change your constitutional name, the Greek parliament will ratify the agreement

I am sure that there will be a majority in the Greek Parliament that will vote for the Prespa Agreement, the European Parliament vice-president and head of the SYRIZA group, Dimitrios Papadimoulis, said at a press conference after the end of the EU-Macedonia Joint Parliamentary Committee.

“I have no doubts, I am sure, if your country ratifies the Prespa Agreement and makes all necessary constitutional changes as agreed, then the Greek Parliament will ratify the agreement,” Papadimoulis said.

He said he expects the Prespa Agreement to be ratified by the Greek Parliament in March next year.

The EU-Macedonia Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) held Wednesday and Thursday its 15th meeting under the joint chairmanship of Alojz Peterle, MEP from Slovenia and Goran Milevski, MP and LDP president.
