NOTE OF PROTEST TO GREECE OVER MAT
Macedonian authorities delivered a note of protest today for banning MAT to make charter flights over Greece's air space.
The note sent to the Greek Ministry of Transport and Communication says that the Greek authorities' decision represents blatant violation of the international laws.
"The decision of the Greek Airline Administration to reject permission to the company bearing the name MAT - Macedonian Airlines, is a blatant violation of the European Union's fundamental values and has no legal basis in the international acts regulating the air traffic," says the note of protest.
It further reminds that the European Common Aviation Area Agreement allows to airliners of the EU member-countries and of Macedonia to enjoy unlimited rights in terms of operating charter and regular flights between all points in EU and in Macedonia.
MD: This is unbelievable, these actions the Greeks have taken is what a 8 year old would do.
