It will require some heavy lifting by heavy EU states and institutions to get a Macedonia name compromise, but without one the EU Balkan strategy risks collapse, said the Co-Chair of the European Council for
Foreign Relations and former Swedish Foreign Minister, Carl Bildt.

“I think it will require some heavy lifting by heavy EU states and institutions to get a Macedonia name compromise. But without one the EU Balkan strategy risks collapse”, tweeted Bildt whilst sharing an article from the Greek newspaper “Ekathimerini” regarding yesterday’s protests in Athens.
