Athens, 5 March 2018 (MIA) - The prerequisite for the acceptance of an agreement on the name and the country's accession to NATO and the EU is the previous change of its constitution, said Greek President Prokopios Pavlopoulos, MIA reports from Athens.
Pavlopoulos noted it is clear to everyone that Macedonia's accession to the EU and NATO cannot be accepted, but also an agreement cannot be reached without prior revision of its constitution and without a name "that will eliminate any trace of irredentism", while at the same time highlighting the responsibilities of Prime Minister Zoran Zaev.
"The solution of the name issue is a basic prerequisite - and this is not just a Greek position, it is NATO's position, it is the EU's position - it has to change its constitution," Pavlopoulos stressed on Sunday, during his proclamation as a citizen of the municipality Pydna-Kolindros, at Pieria. ik/10:23
