“The ratification of the Prespes Agreement is a victory for the Republic”, said the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Greece, Jens Plötner, in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency.

The German ambassador said that it is a “good” deal, adding that Greece and the wider Balkan region will benefit. He also praised the prime ministers on both sides for the courage they have demonstrated in resolving this long-standing dispute.

“Although it was a difficult decision, I think it was, however, a brave and correct decision and I am absolutely convinced that in a few years there will even be a majority in Greek public opinion supporting the same view,” the German ambassador noted.
