Macedonian president walks out of meeting with PM Izvor: Screeenshot

Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov walked out of a meeting with Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov who informed him of the agreement reached with Greece on the name of the former Yugoslav republic.

“Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrovic tried to present and discuss the content of the agreement with Greece on the name but Gjorge Ivanov left the meeting and refused to discuss the advantages of the historic agreement,” it said.
