ND’s press office on BBC’s report about a “Macedonian minority” living in Greece

Main opposition party New Democracy (ND) on Sunday issued an announcement on the occasion of a BBC news programme referring to an oppressed ‘Macedonian minority’ that has been living in Greece for years, calling on the government to “clarify, categorically and towards all directions, that there is no issue of a ‘Macedonian ethnic minority’ in Greece.”

The announcement also made reference to a parliament exchange between Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras during which the latter accused the former of harboring nationalism, and said that the BBC news report directly invoked the PM’s speech.

“The responsibility for the Prespes Agreement and its harming consequences lies exclusively on the government and its willing supporters,” the announcement concluded.
