Polish Support for Macedonia

11 November 2008 Skopje – Poland supports Macedonia’s efforts to integrate into Euro-Atlantic structures and will not change its position regarding the use of its constitutional name in bilateral relations, the Polish President Lech Kaczynski said late on Monday in Warsaw.

Kaczynski said this after meeting with Maceedonian President Branko Crvenkovski, the MIA news agency reported.

In April Athens blocked Skopje’s invitation to join NATO arguing that Macedonia’s name implies territorial claims over its own northern province with the same name.

Despite the Greek objections Macedonia’s constitutional name has so far been recognised by around 120 countries worldwide.

President Crvenkovski will participate on Tuesday at the celebration marking the 90th anniversary of Poland regaining its independence.
