Gov’t spokesman responds to ND deputy Bakoyannis’ criticism on FYROM talks

Foreign policy “cannot be carried out through tweets,” and New Democracy Deputy Dora Bakoyannis should know better as a former foreign minister, government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said on Wednesday.

Tzanakopoulos was responding to criticism by Bakoyannis, who accused the government of entering negotiations with FYROM “with two conflicting positions.”

The spokesman added, “As for the substance of the issue, we would like to inform her that the government has both the will and the ability to resolve an issue that Greece inherited from her own party.”
