European media cover Macedonian rally
“Only our country can be called Macedonia!”, This is what we are reading today on flags and banners by the protesters who have flooded the streets of Athens ..”, writes the German medium.
“Tens of thousands of people are demonstrating in central Athens against the planned ratification of the name change of Macedonia to “Northern Macedonia “, the German Radio reports, adding: “Many Greeks are opposed to changing the name. The controversy over the name resolution has so far prevented ‘Macedonia’ from joining the EU and NATO.
