Potami leader Theodorakis: ‘Greek Macedonia has nothing to fear

The Greek parliament “made a decision that serves the interests of the Greek people and enforces security in the region,” Potami leader Stavros Theodorakis said following the ratification of the Prespes Agreement on Friday.

“Potami supported the Prespes Agreement, which breaks a monopoly of the name ‘Macedonia’ by our neighbouring country, guided by national instead of party interests,” Theodorakis said. He added that “Greek Macedonia has nothing to fear. On the contrary, it’s up to us to retain a leading force in the economy, in production and in culture.”

The Potami leader said that Greece is in a geopolitically sensitive neighbourhood where trust and collaboration are necessary. The Balkans, he said, “must continually strengthen what unites us, not what divides us – this is the great challenge in the Balkans that we must meet.”
