CRVENKOVSKI: GREECE VIOLATES INTERIM ACCORD
Greece violated the Interim Accord by the recent blatant breach of Article 11 when it vetoed Macedonia's membership in NATO at the Bucharest Summit, Macedonian President Branko Crvenkovski said in a letter sent to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
Crvenkovski explained Article 11 of the Interim Accord, pursuant to which Greece shell not block Macedonia's admittance in international organizations if the country is named under the temporal reference FYROM.
"Disrespecting this legal obligation, Greece objected our membership in NATO at the Summit in Bucharest, conditioning the admittance by reaching a mutually acceptable solution on the name of the Republic of Macedonia, thus directly violating the abovementioned Article," Crvenkovski said in the letter.
It further adds that the violation of the Accord might trigger long-term destabilization consequences in the South East European region.
