Greek farmers still blocking main road link between Macedonia and Greece

Greek farmers still blocking main road link between Macedonia and Greece

Gevgelija, 17 February 2017 (MIA) - Greek farmers continue to block the Gevgelija border crossing with Macedonia - the most important road link between the two countries. Vehicles are not allowed to cross the border in either direction at the crossing also known as Bogorodica - Evzoni, and motorists are advised to use the Dojran or Bitola crossings.

The strike has been in effect since January 30th, and it has inflicted significant material damages and disruptions of travel plans. Macedonian Foreign Affairs Ministry sent a protest letter to Greece, asking that the issue is resolved as soon as possible. The European Commission has also been notified of this violation of the agreement for stabilization and association, which guarantees free movement of goods and people.

Calls to Greece to end the blockade have also been sent by the association of forwarders of Macedonia, through their international association. A joint call came from Macedonian and Serbian chambers of commerce, considering that the blockade has regional implications.cc/08:37
