Naftemporiki: Papoulias sent double message to FYROM, Turkey before Bulgarian President

Athens. Greek President Karolos Papoulias has sent double message to the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) and Turkey during Tuesday’s dinner in the honor of Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov who pays a three-day visit to Greece, Greek Naftemporiki newspaper writes. Papoulias called on Turkey to implement its engagements and recommended Skopje to leave the ideology of “Makedonism” because it would pay a high price for it.
Papoulias noted before Parvanov Greece would continue to support the European perspective before the West Balkans but pointed the support would not be unreserved. Papoulias sent the following message to Ankara:
“In December the European Council will access and will be accessed. Turkey must fulfill its engagements.”
For FYROM Papoulias noted it has accepted to negotiate on finding final name for general usage acceptable for both countries.
“Monopolizing of the term Macedonia and its derivatives in the name of the country, nationality and language does not respond to reality in the region and is violation,” Papoulias noted as pointing that until Skopje shows this obstinacy NATO doors would remain close and procedures on accession to EU-blocked.
