  • [01] Greek PM to meet fYRoM counterpart in Brussels (ADDS)

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA) -- Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou is scheduled to meet with his counterpart from the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (fYRoM), Nikola Gruevski, on Thursday afternoon on the sidelines of a European Union Summit here.

    The meeting comes days after the International Court of Justice at The Hague (ICJ) opened proceedings on a case initiated by the land-locked former Yugoslav republic against Greece. The former claims that Athens violated provisions of a September 1995 "interim agreement", namely, the stipulation not to block fYRoM's entry into international organisation, i.e. NATO in this case.

    Greece has vehemently rejected the accusation, pointing instead to what its calls a series of provocative and even irrendentist actions by successive Skopje governments. Amongst others, the latter filed the motion at the ICJ under its constitutional name instead of the UN-recognised former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
