"The Greeks realize the name dispute is ridiculous," Nova Makedonija's Sanja Ristovska is reporting from Athens.
"The Greeks realize the name dispute is ridiculous," Nova Makedonija's Sanja Ristovska is reporting from Athens. In the past few days, Greek media have been citing statements by members of the governing party in favor of Macedonia's constitutional name. But even Panos Kammenos, the leader of the right-wing populist Independent Greeks, has changed his mind. While insisting on Mouzalas's resignation only two weeks ago, now he claims the immigration minister's blunder was truly a slip-up. When attacked by New Democracy during a heated parliamentary argument for having sided with Syriza's lenient position, Kamennos replied by citing New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis's advisor as saying several years ago, "we cannot decide what our neighbor should be called, whether we like it or not."
