Athens and Sofia team up against Skopje

Thursday, 30 April 2009

With the publication of a book featuring confidential documents from Bulgarian state archives, Greece and Bulgaria created a joint front in a bid to deny the Macedonian identity - state, nation, language, and name - which might additionally affect Macedonia's integration into the Euro-Atlantic community.
Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis, who presented on Wednesday the book "The Macedonian issue and Bulgaria - Confidential documents /1950-1967" ***, confirmed the ties and the apparent matching of positions of Greece and Bulgaria in denying Macedonia.
The book is a joint publication of the Society for Macedonian Studies and the Bulgarian State Archives.
During the presentation of the book, Bakoyannis noted that "the Bulgarian, same as many other previous historic documents show that the Macedonian issue is largely an ideological fabrication of the Cold War.
"The so-called Macedonian issue has become a tool to accomplish interests and goals that have nothing in common with the essence. It is a result of a long-standing competition in the Balkan. It's high time to leave it behind, it's time that stereotypes and rhetoric of an old era be left to the history, and seek stable and sustainable solutions of open issues such as this one," Bakoyannis said during the book promotion ceremony at the Athens-based War Museum.
Most of her speech focused on the name differences, reaffirming the Greek position on the matter.
She stressed that Greece is ready to "continue with intensive negotiations", adding that Athens sees a compromise solution in "composite name with a geographical qualifier for all uses ".
Bakoyannis also sent a message to the Former Yugoslav Macedonian government to cooperate in the efforts to reach a mutually acceptable solution, noting that "Greek consistent position on this matter has won an approval by the international community".
