As the site reports.

Austria is threatening to sabotage the hard-won Macedonia name deal unless the European Union ends membership talks with Turkey, in the latest sign of deep divisions in a bloc riven with discord over migration.

According to the Telegraph, officials in Brussels have been informed by Austrian government officials that the government’s goal is to block the deal until the EU withdraws from the accession negotiations with Ankara.
