Kyriakos Mitsotakis

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has strongly condemned the recent decision by the new President of North Macedonia to deviate from the official text of her oath and refer to her country by an alternate name.

“The recent decision of the new President of North Macedonia to deviate from the official text of her oath and refer to her country by an alternate name is considered to be an unlawful and unacceptable action. This action blatantly contradicts both the Prespa Agreement and the North Macedonian Constitution, and thus endangers the integrity and future of the nation,” stated Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in a Facebook post.

Highlighting Greece’s adherence to international treaties, Mitsotakis emphasized that New Democracy opposed the 2019 Agreement but upheld the country’s commitment to its signature upon assuming government responsibilities. “Unfortunately, recent events have confirmed our original concerns,” he added.

Expressing Greece’s condemnation of such manipulative actions, Mitsotakis urged the new President to fulfill her legal obligations and exhibit behavior befitting her role. He reiterated Greece’s firm stance against any regression and emphasized that bilateral relations and North Macedonia’s European ambitions depend on sincere adherence to agreements and the correct use of its constitutional name, urging the avoidance of provocations.
