MACEDONIA'S ROAD TO EU AND NATO SEALED
In a strong-worded message to Macedonia, Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis made it clear that the country's road to EU and NATO is sealed if no deal on the name row is reached.
Kathimerini daily says Karamanlis toned up his rhetoric in a speech before Greek parliament.
In a reply to rightist Laos party leader Yorgos Karadjaferis, Karajan's stressed that Skopje's Euro-Atlantic ambitions won't come true if the authorities care about political gain of upcoming elections instead of caring about the country's future.
Greek prime minister reiterated Athens' position that only a name with a geographic qualifier could pave the way to an ultimate deal.
