US exerts pressure on Skopje –Athens name dispute

Washington. Washington warns that if Macedonia does not achieve all the necessary reforms and compromises, its NATO perspective will not be so nice, Greek newspaper Eleftherotypia writes today.
The US Deputy Assistant Secretary Rosemary DiCarlo recommends Skopje not to do “odd things” with Greece.
A month ago the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice sent a letter to her Macedonian counterpart. The letter reads that Washington’s hope for the integration of Skopje in NATO couldn’t be understood as a commitment, because the discordance between Athens and Skopje may turn into a real obstacle for Macedonian integration to the Alliance.
