GREECE: "CHANGE YOUR NAME AND WE WILL GIVE YOU ANYTHING YOU WANT"
Macedonia's new name should be based on a geographic determinant, said Tuesday in Belgrade Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Petros Dukas.
He stated that Athens would support Macedonia "in every possible way as soon as the name row is resolved".
"Greek Macedonia is larger by territory and population from the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and we cannot overlook this. We believe that a geographic name is a good basis for a solution", said Dukas.
He added that "as a result of the friendly settlement of the dispute", Greece is ready to support Macedonia "financially and in every way possible". This is from a country that owes 112% of their GDP.
