ND leader Mitsotakis: FYROM name agreement is “a bad deal”

New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Tuesday an agreement reached by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his FYROM peer settling a name dispute between the two nations is a “bad deal”

“I want to be absolutely clear. Tsipras does not have the political legitimacy to bind this this country by signing an agreement that does not have the support of his own government, ” said Mitsotakis.

“The solution agreed upon is a bad deal. It is in contrast to what the majority of Greeks want. Some people do not understand this, or even worse, they do not want to understand it,” he added.

The ND leader will meet with President Prokopios Pavlopoulos on Wednesday at 9:30 to discuss the latest developments on the FYROM name issue.
