Greece: Greeks flood Thessaloniki port tro protest FYROM bid to be called 'Macedonia'

Thousands gathered in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki on Sunday, to protest against the use of the name 'Macedonia' in a lengthy dispute between Athens and Skopje over the official name of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. The protesters gathered in the port of Thessaloniki to voice their opposition amid ongoing UN-mediated negotiations over the appellation of the former... Еще Yugoslav republic. Attempts by Macedonia to join NATO and the European Union have been halted by Greece since 1993, when Greece accepted as formal appellation the name 'FYROM' (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia). The name 'Macedonia' bares dangers for the Greek side since it implies a territorial claim over the Greek northern region Macedonia.
