Government condemns Nationalist provocations at parades in Greece

The Government said on Wednesday it fiercely condemned the nationalist provocations at the Athens and Thessaloniki military parades. Contrary to the spirit of the Prespa Agreement, Greek soldiers, with support from chants from the crowd, were performing the march “Famous Macedonia”. Simultaneously with such incidents, Athens and Skopje are continuing to work on the revision of textbooks in line with the name deal. Greek Deputy FM Markos Bolaris said the northern neighbour’s new name would be introduced in Greek textbooks. On the other hand, authorities in Skopje don’t want to say when the changed name will be part of textbooks in the country. Athens claims that its textbooks don’t contain irredentist allegations, which is why there is no need for them to be revised.
