MACEDONIA FILES LEGAL PRECEEDINGS AGAINST GREECE AT INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE



National.

The Republic of Macedonia has filed legal proceedings at the International Court of Justice in The Hague against Greece. Macedonia has filed an Application with the Registrar of the Court to bring Greece into compliance with its legal obligations under the Interim Accord of 13 September 1995, which binds the two countries., the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Monday in a press release.

Article 11 of the 1995 Accord obliges Greece not to object to Macedonia's application to join NATO. At the NATO Summit held in Bucharest in April 2008, however, Greece objected to extending NATO membership invitation to Macedonia, thus flagrantly violating its obligations under the Interim Accord.

Antonio Milososki, Foreign Minister and Macedonia's representative before ICJ, says that protection of Macedonian rights under the Interim Agreement is the only reason for filing the Application.

- We have given a lot of thought before initiating this case, but we see no other way for justice to be done and our rights to be protected. We hope this action might encourage Greece to bring its actions into compliance with its international legal obligations, and that it might also encourage our two countries to reach a final settlement on outstanding issues in the spirit of good-neighbourliness and cooperation envisaged by the Interim Accord, Milososki said.

He expressed belief that ICJ would help in settling this legal dispute, considering its just and prompt actions.

- We are not asking the Court to deal with other political issues, so that the dispute over the name is not the subject of our Application. We also want to stress that we remain strongly committed to all aspects of the Interim Accord, in particular to the process of negotiations with Greece, mediated by the Special Envoy of the UN Secretary General, Milososki said.

The Application requests the International Court of Justice to adjudge and declare that (Greece), through its State organs and agents, has violated its obligations under Article 11, paragraph 1 of the Interim Accord; to order that (Greece) immediately take all necessary steps to comply with its obligations under Article 11, paragraph 1 of the Interim Accord, and to cease and desist from objecting in any way, whether directly or indirectly, to (Macedonia's) NATO membership and/or any other 'international, multilateral and regional organizations and institutions' of which (Greece) is a member, in circumstances where (Macedonia) is to be referred to in such organizations or institutions by the designation provided for in paragraph 2 of United Nations Security Council Resolution 817 (1993).

ICJ is the primary judicial organ of the United Nations.Established in 1945 by the UN Charter, the Court began work in 1946 as the successor to the Permanent Court of International Justice.

The Court's workload is characterised by a wide range of judicial activity. Its main functions are to settle legal disputes submitted to it by member states and to give advisory opinions on legal questions submitted to it by duly authorized international organs, agencies and the UN General Assembly.

FROM 'AMERICAN CHRONICLE'NEWSPAPER
FYROM's Nikola Gruevski Lawsuit: His Latest Provocation
Vasko Gligorijevic
November 17, 2008
The news that Nikola Gruevski, the Prime Minister of FYROM and his Government have chosen to file a lawsuit against Greece, claiming that Greece broke the 1993 Interim accord by vetoing FYROM's acceptance into NATO at the Bucarest summit, comes not as surprise. During the entire mandate of Gruevski's VMRO-DPMNE led Government, several attempts of playing the victim card have been tried. After his idea to open the "Aegean"* Question after the relavant chapter of the history has been closed for 60 years, in a naive manner, by issuing resolutions and Spam-like correspondence, this new actions comes just few months before the local and Presidential election in Mr. Gruevski's despotate. The purpose of the lawsuit is understandable. It is not an appeal for legal solution of rightful grievances but a continuation of the "war of symbols" practiced by VMRO-DPMNE. Following the Orwellian maxim "however controls the past, controls the future" the fascistic regime of Gruevski instilled fake sense of identity among Slavs of FYROM, at the same time creating a conviction among the general population that preserving and cherishing this falsified heritage is an act of uttermost priority, a categorical imperative that sets preconditions for social success. Consequently, this last move of desperation from an ideologically bankrupt regime, which views the world in 21st century with the mentality typical of 19th century, when the original VMRO, a gang of nationalist butchers cherishing the idea of Greater Bulgaria, was founded.

After the announcement of the decision in the afternoon hours at 17-X-2008, the media loyal to the regime commented that this is an adequate answer to the policy of official Athens. No mention has been made for the reactivation of irredentist behavior, usage of Greek symbols, promotion of falsified history in a methodical, systematic way, which was ubiquitous for several months.

The lawsuit accuses Greece that it broke the article 11 from the 1995 Accord, but that is not a case

The article in question reads:

"Article 11

1. Upon entry into force of this Interim Accord, The Party of the First Part agrees not to object to the application by or the membership of the Party of the Second Part in international, multilateral and regional organizations and institutions of which the Party of the First Part is a member; however, the Party of the First Part reserves the right to object to any membership referred to above if and to the extent of the Party of the Second Part is to be referred to in such organization or institution differently than in paragraph 2 of the United Nations Security Council resolution 817 (1993). "


This article obviously does not apply to the fact that FYROM's application for membership at the NATO Summit in Bucharest resulted from a convergence of opinions that FYROM isn't ready and it was caused by a multiple failures of reforms wanted from official Skopje. Finally the aforementioned barrage of provocative actions affirmed that FYROM, headed by Gruevski, shows unacceptable, irredentist behavior towards a Greece as a NATO member of long standing.

The latest move by Skopje is therefore, nothing more than a public relationship stunt with aim to fortify hardline totalitarian attitude of FYROMian population, to divert attention from true problems. It is a logical next step after intensive demonization of Greece during VMRO-DPMNE's mandate at one hand and evidence of refusal on behalf of FYROM to end the ongoing negotiation in reasonable time, since most legal experts confirmed that if the lawsuit is accepted by the International Court in Hague, it will take no less than three years before a final decision.

The lawsuit was strongly criticized by FYROM's President Branko Crvenkovski who characterized it as a "catastrophe on behalf of foreign policy makers".

"Aegean Macedonia", "Aegean Macedonians" are recently invented irredentist terms with intention of usurpation of the singular, Greek Macedonia as well as to give impression a number of migrants from villages around the North-Western Macedonian towns of Florina and Kastoria (most of them defeated Communist guerrillas) were the primary population of entire Macedonia. This term implies some connection to the Aegean sea, while in reality this small community was always far removed from the Aegean littoral, and without any historical, naval tradition.

Karolina Goceva the 2007 F.YUG.R.O.M representative in Eurovision, took a bulgarian passport, declares herself as Bulgarian and today lives in Bulgaria...
Aha... the bulgarian list of former yugoslavian rebublic is getting bigger every day...

You Greeks have no idea about anything you are being fooled by your own Government that you are apart of Macedonia History that is not the case.

The name Greece and Hellenic was founded in the 1830s which makes Greece only 179 years old.

But the Name Macedonia is over 5000 years old the founders of Macedonian soil are the Vlah Tribe they where first.

In the Bzy Time era the Macedonian people where called Vlahs but that is not the case we are the True Macedonians of Alexander the Great there is about 1.5 Million Vlahs in Greece today. And about 100,000 in the republic of Macedonia in the Republic of Macedonia we go by our real name as Macedonians but in Greece we don’t even call ourselves Vlahs or Macedonians because under Greek law we are just plain not allowed you have to be Greek and nothing else. But us Vlahs from Australia are proud of our Macedonian Heritage and we are proud Macedonians.

UNITED MAKEDONIJA

Vlah + Slavic = Macedonian

we only get bulgarian pass ports so we can get jobs there does not mean we are bulgarians. i think we are smarter then what you think we have pass ports in both countries in macedonian and bulgarian so if you really think about in whos the winning we are because our population is growing in bulgaria by the min and we come from both countries united macedonia is coming so bro.
