”There can be no policy that is better for the future of the Balkans than cooperation between Greece and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM),” Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias said in an interview with the Greek public broadcaster ERT late on Monday.
He noted that through this cooperation “we will stabilize this country (FYROM), which we don’t want to see destroyed.”
Kotzias added that FYROM, without coordination and some kind of stability, can collapse. ”This would be the worst outcome not only for the country itself but for Greece as well,” said the Greek Foreign Minister.
Asked about Greece-FYROM relations, Kotzias said that they are an axis that stabilizes the Balkans.
Kotzias explained that Sunday’s referendum was neither a legal condition nor a prerequisite for the implementation of Prespa agreement, adding that a ‘yes’ vote represented an absolute majority of the actual number of voters.
