Greece blames Macedonian authorities for lack of progress in name dispute.

By bne IntelliNews November 26, 2010
Greek Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas said in an interview for Hungarian daily Magyar Nemzet that his country is ready to resolve the name dispute with Macedonia immediately, but Macedonian authorities have to demonstrate the same will and constructive spirit, Macedonian Information Agency (MIA) reported. Droutsas said Macedonia engages in negative rhetoric and provocations. The Greek foreign minister also noted that the two countries cannot be partners as long as policies of Macedonian authorities question even the current political reality. Droutsas concluded by saying that their stance is that the countrys name should reflect the reality that Macedonia is a region that today falls within FYROM, Albania, Bulgaria and, the largest part, in Greece.
