Croatian President Assesses Name Agreement as Very Good

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic said Wednesday she hoped that the Yes vote would pass in the name referendum and called the name agreement ‘very good’. “For us, it is utterly important to stabilize southeast Europe, I’m glad that positive messages for Macedonia will be relayed after the country reached an agreement with Greece. I believe and I hope it will be overwhelmingly passed in the referendum, which is a historic one. I understand the feelings of some Macedonians. But, I believe that the agreement is exceptionally good – with North Macedonia the Greek part becomes South and also it mentions the adjective Macedonian and everything else. I think it is a good compromise and I hope NATO will help Macedonia complete the process, because the country is expected to join the organization after a year, a year and a half. But, what’s important is that Macedonia in the meantime can partake in meetings without the right to vote,” President Grabar-Kitarovic told members of the media.
