Athens will send a Note Verbale to Skopje tomorrow

Athens will send a Note Verbale to Skopje on Monday, informing that Greece has ratified the Prespa Agreement and the NATO Accession Protocol, says Alternate Foreign Minister Geirgios Katrougalos.

In an interview with ANA-MPA, Katrougalos explains the next steps following the Greek parliament’s green light to the Prespa Agreement and the NATO Accession Protocol.

“A Note Verbale will be sent on Monday and afterwards North Macedonia will inform the UN and member-states that have recognized it under the constitutional name to use the new name in the future. Of course, its obligations related to the change of institutions, streets, documents that have the old name begin on Monday, as agreed,” says Katrougalos.

Asked if the neighboring country will be obliged to use the new name as of next week, Katrougalos responds positively and adds that the Prespa Agreement is clear regarding this aspect.
