Prespes deal will be backed by larger majority than government, Vitsas predicts

“I believe that there are the people in parliament who understand what is in the country’s best interests and I believe that the Prespes Agreement will be backed by a larger majority than the confidence vote in the government,” stated Migration Policy Minister Dimitris Vitsas to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) radio station “Praktoreio 104.9 FM” on Tuesday.

He also noted that, once passed, the Prespes Agreement will prove to be “beneficial for both Greece and North Macedonia and for all the countries of the Balkans.”

“Something has happened that has never happened before. A country has changed its constitutional name and changed its constitution. This is indicative of the mutual effort to reach a solution, which has proved so troublesome in the last 27 years,” Vitsas said.

Vitsas sent a call to both political and social forces in the country for a progressive cooperation that will reflect Greece’s proposal for the future. “It is a broader invitation, addressed in two directions,” he said.
