Compound one-word name that can’t be translated, suggests Potami leader Theodorakis

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ meeting with Potami leader Stavros Theodorakis was concluded on Saturday. Theodorakis was briefed by the premier on the developments on the FYROM name issue.

In statements after the meeting, Theodorakis said that his party has a crystal clear position on the issue. He said that Tsipras has brought this discussion late adding that the people must understand what we will gain from a solution that will address irredentism.

We should go to a compound one-word name in Slavic that can’t be translated erga omnes which would be much better than ‘North or Upper Macedonia” said Theodorakis noting that the main issue is the provisions of the Constitution.
