Greek Minister opposes using veto against Macedonia

A Greek Minister and a member of the ruling Nea Democratia opposed Greece's intention to apply veto for membership of Macedonia in NATO.

Using the right of veto to block membership of Macedonia is in collision with the interests of both Greece and Macedonia, Greek Minister of Mercantile Marine Yorgo Vulgarakis said.

Vulgarakis's previous posts include Minister of Public Order and Minister of Culture.

The far-right People's Orthodox Movement (LAOS) announced a protesting rally for tomorrow in Thessaloniki, and the party's leader George Karatzaferis slammed the Government about the way it handles the name issue.
