The Greeks have become accustomed to the idea that there would be a Prespes agreement and a neighbour named North Macedonia, the editor-in-chief of Athens-based Bulgarian News newspaper, Ivan Petrinski, told Focus Radio
. He said yesterday’s protest against the agreement fell short of the expectations of its organisers, which he thinks could be largely attributed to the massive campaign on all fronts against the document. “It’s a long story who is behind this and whose interest it serves, but nevertheless there is a part of [Greek] society, sufficiently mature and intelligent people, who are not against this agreement and who say there is nothing better than what’s been achieved so far. You know very well that we are talking about a long-standing conflict,” Ivan Petrinski said. He hopes the agreement will be ratified by the parliament in Athens as expected. He said the Greeks were very sensitive to any social and political shifts and always seeking their rights, but that the main problem for Greek society was financial-economic, not the neighbour.
