Athens, 5 March 2018 (MIA) – An agreement has been reached between Skopje and Athens regarding the name, the scope of its use, and the acronyms, according to Greek daily Kathimerini.
The newspaper says the negotiations have turned into a perplexing puzzle despite the initial optimism by Athens, MIA Athens correspondent reports.
The Greek government now has to confront the New Democracy opposition party, as well, which wants to see changes in the Constitution, even though "Skopje has ruled out the possibility of any changes to the Constitution, as demonstrated by PM Zaev's interviews," Kathimerini writes.
"If there is progress in the negotiations, Athens may propose a simple amendment to the Constitution," the newspaper writes. According to its sources, "an agreement has been reached on the name, the scope of its use (erga omnes) and the acronyms".
Despite the difficulties he may face considering Panos Kammenos's position in government, Tsipras is committed to solving the name dispute, Kathimerini says.
In its article titled "Mines on Tsipras’s road", the political daily analyzes the outstanding issues the Greek PM has to face in the near future: the economy, and the name dispute. mr/16:39
