President of the Greek parliament Nikos Voutsis on Friday met with Foreign Minister of Skopje Nikola Dimitrov in Athens.
Voutsis described the Prespes agreement as a great international outstanding issue that was resolved by the widest majority of tolerance possible.
On his part, Dimitrov said that both governments "were on the right side of the history".
"We managed to create a small Europe in the Balkans. It was a difficult agreement because it brought change, and people resist change. But what we achieved was outstanding: the agreement put an end to discriminations, taboos and stereotypes," said Dimitrov. "We are creating a future of close relations between the two countries, laying the (relations') foundations. Personally, I will not relax until I persuade everyone who reacts that what we have done is the right thing," noted Dimitrov.
"The Prespes Agreement was ratified to the letter and to its spirit, and fully provides an opening for cooperation and friendship between the people of Greece and Skopje," Voutsis responded.
In parallel, Voutsis urged that the two countries accelerate the implementation of all Prespes Agreement provisions and thus resolve all reasonable objections to the deal.
