  • [01] Interior minister condemns FYROM's intransigence

    Interior and Public Order Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos, speaking at a press conference on Saturday, referred to talks between Greece and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) on the issue of the latter's name and said that "there will not be the slightest discount regarding the claiming of what belongs to our country."

    Pavlopoulos stressed that "Greece is pursuing good neighbourliness and it has supported the state of Skopje in every way, as was the case in the summer with the wildfires. On the part of Skopje, however, there is an unacceptable intransigence with regard to resolving an issue which, in any case, they created. We will make no discounts and we are not permitted to do so."

    The interior minister further said that "it is the time for Skopje, not to make concessions, because one makes concessions when something belongs to you. They must realise reality and understand that instead of claiming names that do not belong to them and history that they did not write, it would be better for them to see how peoples can solve their real problems."

    [02] Education Minister Evripidis Stylianidis visiting Laconia

    Education Minister Evripidis Stylianidis and Deputy Minister Andreas Lykourentzos are visiting the prefecture of Laconia, in the Peloponnese, as of Saturday morning and held talks with local officials on the prefecture's problems in the sector of education.

    Stylianidis said that the overall programme for Laconia amounts to 24.5 million euros and concerns a total of 13 projects. He also said that the first building of the Peloponnese University will be delivered in two months.

    The minister further said that 274 special schools have been scheduled all over the country to serve over 4,000 pupils. A new special school will also be built in the city of Sparti and it will be ready in a year.

    Commenting on sit-in protests in schools, the minister said that when demands have a logical basis efforts are made to satisfy them and, commenting on police measures being called for by some people to deal with the sit-ins, he said that the ministry's policy is one of moderation and responsibility, without police authorities, adding that parents cannot be told what to do.
