The backdrop of the platform from which Mr. Palacevski addressed the participants of this event depicted irredentist symbols and a map of FYROM that included Greek territory.
FYROM's new government claims that it aspires to a new beginning in its relations with Greece. However, despite the change of leadership, it seems that irredentism continues to be the dominant state ideology and day-to-day political practice in our neighbouring country.
The renouncement of irredentism, respect for borders, and practical compliance with the principles of good neighbourliness are necessary conditions for the realisation of FYROM's Euroatlantic aspirations.
