1. It’s Greece’s fault :

    If they would have supported Albanians in “Macedonia “decades ago this none-sense name issue need not be.

  2. Some interesting statistics for those interested:

    137 countries (including 4 of the 5 permeant UN security council members UK, USA, China, Russia and also Canada, Brazil, India) recognize Macedonia as the ‘Republic of Macedonia’

    Only 17 Countries (including Greece, Australia and 11 EU members) recognize Macedonia as ‘the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia’

    The remaining 39 countries (which includes countries like South Sudan, Mali and Ecuador) have no diplomatic relations with Macedonia so there position on the name dispute is ‘we don’t care’.

    So in summary:
    71% of the world recognize Macedonia as the (Republic of Macedonia).

    9% of the world recognize Macedonia as (tfYRo Macedonia).

    20% of the world have no diplomatic relations with Macedonia (so they do not care what their name is).

    So the current government in Macedonia is willing to change the name of the Country and its people to appease the 9%?

    Also I’d like to remind the readers that in 2011 the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled that Greece’s 2008 veto for Macedonians entry into NATO under the name ‘the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia’ was illegal and breeched the 1995 agreement between Macedonia and Greece, which required Macedonia to change its flag and constitution.

    So Greece can't Veto Macedonia again in the July 2018 NATO vote.

    It appears the current government in Macedonia is about to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory...

  3. First of all, FYROM are Bulgarians and their language is Bulgarian.. The Ancient Macedonians spoke Greek and always claimed to be Greeks, so how the hell is FYROM related to Macedonia???!!! FYROM are Bulgarian/slavs, by changing their name from "Vardaska" to the Greek name Macedonia doesn't instandly make them MACEDONIANS!!!

    MACEDONIA 4000 YEARS OF GREEK HISTORY AND CULTURE WILL ALWAYS REMAIN GREEK!!

  4. The fact remains. Macedonians have always been a Greek-speaking Hellenic-peoples...a regional historical people-group of ethnic-Greek stock.

    The Macedonian question must end on the principle of preserving historical (accuracy) cohesion.

  5. There will be zero tolerance with FYROM. If Zaev wanted to mend relations with Greece he would have announced the demolition of the grotesque Italian made Hellenic reproduction statues that litter the FYROM landscape, the renaming of the airport in Skopje, the renaming of the highway, the renaming of the football stadium, the removal of the repulsive Baroque Hellenic style facades, the correcting of school carriculum, the removal of the Hellenic symbol on the national flag, the removal of all greater Macedonia maps from government institutions and a heartfelt apolgy to the nation of Greece for his nation being vile for the last two and a half decades. Cultural theft cannot be forgiven easily. Actions speak louder than words. Greeks do not want to hear politicians trying new age diplomacy that they learnt in their political science classes. Dimitrov, Šekerinska, Zaevand all the Slavic Fyromians currently running FYROM are just as dogmatic about an exclusivity of the name as the Gruevski ultra nationalists. There is no scope for negotiation with these antiques. Greece is the victim here. Our history has been hijacked by Fyromian Slavs. Leave our history alone. It’s not a good fit for you. You cannot pronounce nor read the Ancient inscriptions for they are in Greek. If FYROM wants exclusivity to the name Macedonia they will have to change their official language to Greek for this corresponds with the Ancient Macedonian language.

    Slavo-Bulgars (FYROMians) have nothing to do with Macedonia. They know it and that's why they are having talks.
