Dimitrov: We’re trying to persuade Greece that our accession in the NATO and EU is a good thing

The government is focused on convincing everybody, including neighboring Greece, that it is good Macedonia to become an EU, NATO ally, not only for Greece but also for the entire region, Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov told a press conference on Thursday.

Asked if there is plan B if the name talks fail considering the Greek demands, Dimitrov said the focus should remain on the plan A.

“We’re focused on plan A. We want to persuade everyone, including Greece, that Macedonia’s accession in the EU and NATO is a good thing not only for Greece, but for other countries too. I think that chances for success are greater now and we should focus on this plan”, Dimitrov said.
