A Day of Infamy... the Saga continues 2008

Rome, 16/11/1993 (ANA - S. Aravopoulou): Italy said yesterday that it intended to recognise Skopje under the name of Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. "Italy will recognise the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia under the name of FYROM, not as 'Macedonia' ", an Italian Foreign Ministry spokesman told the ANA yesterday.

In Paris meanwhile, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe yesterday referred to the possibilities of forging diplomatic ties "at any given moment" with Skopje. Expressing his regrets that no solution has yet been found to the dispute between Greece and FYROM on the latter's name, he noted that "since it concerns a member-state of the United Nations, I believe, that at any given moment one should accept the consequences, and forge diplomatic relations with this small country of two million people". Mr. Juppe also expressed his "full understanding for the positions of our Greek friends",
and hoped that negotiations to find a solution would continue.
