It is time for resolving the name issue. Now seems to be the time for this, optimistically Greek FM Nikos Kotzias stated in an interview with Greek portal Dokumento, reiterating the Greek positions for overcoming the dispute. “Change of the Constitution implies implementation of the erga omnes principle i.e. overall use for the name both for international and internal use as well as avoiding spats that might occur in the future unless the Constitution is changed. Secondly in this way the opportunity is excluded in the future for any other government to seek accountability for violation of the Constitution,” Kotzias says.
