Greece demands explanation from its ambassador in Macedonia

Greek Ambassador in Skopje Theodora Grosomanidou has been summoned in Athens to clarify her statement for Financial Times regarding Macedonia's name.

Ambassador Grosomanidou told the paper that Greece should be aware of the reality that half of the countries in the world have recognized Macedonia under its constitutional name.

Greek Ambassador will also meet with Greek Foreign Ministry officials to clarify her statement.

The Financial Times recently featured an article - Macedonia 2007 - saying the green light for NATO entry would cement the progress the country has made in the past six years.

In the report, the author uses the constitutional name of the Republic of Macedonia.
