A German MEP called Athens and Skopje to find a solution to the name issue as soon as possible, Macedonian Utrinski Vesnik daily writes.
Co-chairperson of the Green-EFA Group, Daniel Cohn-Bendit, said during a conference in Athens that Greece should find a compromise with Macedonia.

“Macedonia is Macedonia. You may call it North, South, West or Cloudy Macedonia, but it exists. The name dispute is not Greece’s biggest problem,” the German MEP remarked.





Balkan Story note: Although Cohn-Bendit is politically active in both France and Germany, he was last elected MEP in France and is thus, technically, “A French MEP”.
