New Democracy (ND) will renegotiate the Prespes Agreement between Greece and FYROM if the government fails to ratify it in Parliament, Makarios Lazaridis, communications consultant for party leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis, said on Friday.

In statements to Parapolitika 90.1 FM radio, Lazaridis said, ?As Mitsotakis has clearly said, we will not vote for the Prespes Agreement under any circumstances. And if the agreement is not ratified by (Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Alexis) Tsipras, we as government will negotiate with Skopje from scratch.?

Lazaridis called the agreement ?a very bad agreement (?) that cedes the ‘Macedonian’ language and ethnicity to Skopje, something which no other government has ever done.?
