The Macedonian Tendency: Now He Tells Us!

Now He Tells Us!

It seems that our good friend Olli Rehn has the good sense to be ashamed of himself. I wish these Macedonian news agencies could link directly to the source of these comments. Journalists are under tight deadlines and this is the type of article that needs to be verified.

Olli Rehn: Reference FYROM is awkward:

Thursday, 22 March 2007

The reference FYROM is awkward, Euro-enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn said Wednesday at the European Parliament. - The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia is a candidate country (for the EU membership) and I believe that the bilateral problem between this country and Greece will be solved soon, so that we will no longer have to use this awkward name, Rehn said.

Rehn responded to a question of EP member, who made a joke proposing Macedonia to be named 'Future European Republic of Macedonia' instead of FYROM.

Rehn was unwilling to comment launching of a date for Macedonia's EU entry talks.

- Macedonia should above all learn the rules of the democratic game, namely the political consensus that will result in completion of the necessary judicial, public administration reforms, Rehn said.
