Athens response to fYRoM suit

    (ANA-MPA) — Greece on Tuesday filed its obligatory counter-memorial at the Hague-based International Court of Justice (ICJ) in relation to a suit brought by the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (fYRoM) over the 1995 “interim agreement” between Athens and the one-time Yugoslav province.

    The counter-memorial was filed by Greece’s agents at the proceedings, Amb. Georgios Savvaidis, foreign ministry legal counsel Maria Telalian and a team of ministry diplomats and legal experts assigned the case.

    The counter-memorial lists, in detail and with accompanying documentation, Greece’s legal arguments vis-?-vis the case, according to a foreign ministry press release on Tuesday. The ministry added that Greece’s written response categorically rejects all of fYRoM’s arguments, presenting legal, political and historical counter-arguments and points of reference.

    Athens had been given a Jan. 20 deadline to file its counter-memorial, whereas fYRoM had filed its memorial by last July.
