Athens, 8 February 2018 (MIA) - The name can be resolved only when there are no signs of irredentism, because irredentism is contrary to international law and European legislation, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos said, reiterating his position about Macedonia that constitutional changes are necessary, remove of irredentist positions and afterwards solution to the problem and Euro-Atlantic integration.
Aimed at finding a solution to the name issue, this country, which unfortunately in its Constitution has posed issues related to the name and other irredentist issues, should make changes in the legal system, especially in the Constitution, aimed at finding a solution to the name, without irredentism, followed by NATO and EU integration process. We are waiting for these changes, which, I underline, are a prerequisite for any prospects for integration into NATO and the European Union, Pavlopoulos said at the start of the meeting with Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili.
Pavlopoulos at the start of the meeting with the Georgian counterpart referred to the so-called national issues sending messages to Macedonia, Turkey and Albania. sk/12:24
