Greek FM Stavros Dimas: “I Hope Skopje Will Receive the Political Message from Chicago”

April 23, 2012

Part of the Interview to Aggeliki Spanou, published in Makedonia, 22.04.2012 (translated from Greek)



Stavros Dimas

In the NATO summit in Chicago (20th May) fYROM will try to overturn the results of Bucharest taking advantage of the decision of the International Court of Justice in the Hague (ICJ). Do you believe we can avoid such a development?

 The decision of Bucharest, as well as the decisions of the following summits, are clear, unanimous and demonstrate the will of the Alliance in its entirety. The decision of the ICJ has nothing to do with the decision making process of the Alliance. In preparation for the Chicago Summit these last months we have done a good preparation, as had been done to manage the decision of the ICJ, with positive results for Greece, as we achieved unanimous decisions in the E.U. and NATO, that repeated the positions of these two institutions on the 5th and the 7th December, immediately following the decision of the ICJ. In the end that which is of interest for our country is that we find a mutually acceptable solution to the problem. I hope that the political message that Skopje will receive from Chicago, with the confirmation of the stable positions of NATO, will contribute to the formation of a constructive position on their part at the negotiation table after the Summit.
