Foreign Minister Poposki: Greece should not provoke Macedonian tourists.

Macedonian Foreign Minister Nikola Poposki appealed to the Greek authorities to not provoke Macedonian tourists by putting FYROM stickers on their license plates.

"These acts and provocations are not welcome. We have already reacted to this on a diplomatic level. Putting stickers on the license plates saying 'FYROM' reveal lack of dedication and constructiveness in resolving the name issue, which is outside of all legal frames. We believe energy should focus on cooperation rather than on creation of unfounded and illegitimate provocations such as the putting of FYROM stickers. Moreover, it is more important to Greece to encourage the number of tourists in the country rather than send them signals of not being welcome," Poposki said.

He said these were individual incidents and not an established rule and added that the license plates were in keeping with international standards.
