Dep. FM Vlasis: Government Is Ensuring Correct and Strict Implementation of the Prespes Agreement

ATHENS – The foreign ministry ensures the consistent, correct and strict implementation of the provisions of the Prespes Agreement, as well as the implementation of the decisions of the Joint Interministerial Committee of Experts on the historical and educational issues, said Deputy Foreign Minister Kostas Vlasis in reply to SYRIZA MP Sia Anagnostopoulou's question entitled "Delay in the implementation of the decisions for the school books of North Macedonia".

"You are aware of our views, it was not a good agreement but we are supporting it because we believe that the state should have continuity," Vlasis said, noting that "our main priority is to support our historic and cultural heritage, which are essential elements of our nation's identity, as we are doing whatever possible to support the brand name of our Macedonia."

Vlasis said that there was no delay but that international meetings could not be carried out over the last period due to the pandemic, adding that the 5th meeting of the committee will we held without changes in its composition.
