ND leader Mitsotakis: "Today is a sad day for Greece"

"Today is difficult, a sad day for Greece," main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Friday after the ratification of the Prespes Agreement by the Greek parliament. 

"The government, with an opportunist majority, voted for the harmful Prespes Agreement. Its ratification means the official recognition of the Macedonian language and identity for the residents of (Greece's northern neighbour) for the first time by a Greek government, so the 10-year national line is abandoned. Tsipras said 'yes' where all his predecessors said 'no'. Only he knows the reasons," Mitsotakis said.    

ND's leader predicted that this would mark the start of "new ills" and that SYRIZA's four-year
sojourn in power, "was completing its disastrous passage with a national concession."

New Democracy, he added, "presented the truth about the national issue and the true face of each party and each deputy. Personally, I spoke with sincerity about the great difficulties that are coming with the implementation of the Agreement. I made a commitment, however, to firmly adhere to national duty: I will not give up Greece's right to veto Skopje's accession to the EU, I will fight will all my strength to lessen the negative repercussions that are certain to result from a problematic agreement."
