Greek Foreign Ministry reacts strongly to German deputy FM's statements in Skopje
The Greek Foreign Ministry reacted strongly to the statements of the German deputy Foreign Minister Michael Roth after his meeting with his counterpart Nikola Dimitrov in Skopje on Tuesday.

We would call on German Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Roth to be more cautious when visiting countries in the Balkans, to avoid attempting to deliver history lessons and show the necessary respect for the sensitivities of his European partners.

The German Deputy FM said after his meeting with FYROM FM Nikola Dimitrov in Skopje that "No one except Macedonia and Greece understands the difference between them which is completely absurd". Continuing, he said that we must leave history in history and move on to a common future./IBNA
