FYROM cannot join NATO or EU without the consent of Greece

FYROM cannot join NATO or the European Union without the consent of Greece, the Greek daily Naftemporiki reported, commenting on the US Under Secretary of State Nicholas Burns. According to Burns, the problem between Athens and Skopje for the name of Macedonia could not be considered a reason that could stop the accession of the country to the Alliance. He noted that a name of the republic, which is acceptable for both countries should be found.

Unfortunately, Skopje will never join any international community if doesn't show respect for Greece's long history.

Time is ticking against Skopje and they must try harder to find their own identity instead of stealing part of Greece's glorious history.
