Greece blames Macedonia for sabotaging talks with minority issue

Athens made it clear that it won't discuss the Macedonian minority issue, noting that Skopje is trying to sabotage the ongoing talks on the name by raising the minority issue.

Government's spokesman Evangelos Andonaros rebuffed to comment the Macedonian government's request for recognition of Macedonian minority in Greece, noting that Athens' position on the matter is clear.

"Greece, through its prime minister, announced its position absolutely clear. I have nothing to add regarding the futile attempts by other side, which obviously aims to sabotage the efforts to find a solution to the name issue," Andonaros told reporters.
