GREEK AMBASSADOR IN MACEDONIA RECALLED



National.

Greece has abruptly recalled its Ambassador to Macedonia, Mrs. Theodora Grosomanidou, upon an executive order signed by Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis.

Last week, the Greek Foreign Ministry summoned Her Excellency Grosomanidou in Athens to clarify her statement for The Financial Times, regarding name dispute between Macedonia and Greece. She was quoted as saying that Greece has to face the new reality, as its neighbor has been recognized under its constitutional name - Macedonia - by more than half of the members of the UN.

According to Ta Nea online newspaper, Bakoyannis was angry at Grosomanidou for giving the interview without asking the Greek government for permission. The same source says the news article was paid by Macedonian government amid its advertising and propaganda campaign.

MD: Mrs Grosomanidou, according to Ta Nea, will be replaced by Greek Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Alexandra Papadopoulou.
