“The Prespes Agreement is causing massive national damage, it destabilises the region and brings black clouds over Greece,” main opposition New Democracy (ND) shadow defence minister Vassilis Kikilias said on Friday, in an interview.
He also referred to former prime minister Antonis Samaras’ historical review, from the time of early 20th-century statesman Eleftherios Venizelos until the present, in which he provided evidence that neither the name ‘Macedonia’ nor the ‘Macedonian’ language had ever been conceded.
“There is no agreement that is more problematic, more damaging to our national issues and more embarrassing than this. I understand our colleagues who had another view. But those who said only a few months ago that they would never give up our Macedonia, those who were voted by the Greeks to be in the opposition, suddenly found themselves in the coalition government, exchanging the vote they had received from the people with a ministerial position for a few more months,” he added.
