  • [01] Greek envoy briefs US officials, diplomats

    Greece's Ambassador to the United States, Alexandros Mallias, on Monday briefed members of Congress along with US State Department and National Security Council officials regarding developments in the Balkans as well as Greek policy in the region.

    Mallias referred to "a consistent Greek policy in support of European aspirations of Balkan countries? amid the context of a strategic policy between the European Union and the United States.

    He also emphasised Bulgaria's and Romania's accession to the European Union and spoke of "the leading role of Greece in the energy and other sectors, and in general, in the processes of the region's economic integration."

    The Greek ambassador cited what he called propaganda by the government of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), presenting school and military academy maps of the neighbouring country as well as statements by FYROM officials showing that the use of the name Alexander the Great for the Skopje airport is part of a wider framework of irredentist propaganda by FYROM.
