Macedonia was one of the topics discussed by US President Barack Obama and his Greek counterpart Prokopis Pavlopoulos. The Greek President repeated his views and accusations against the Macedonian government to Obama, criticizing the country for trying to adopt Greek history as its own.

“The fact is that a neighbouring state, who are demanding a name, who other than falsifying history, spreading irredentism and are directly implying a change of the borders, are undermining the country’s European perspective”, Pavlopoulos stressed.

Barack Obama did not respond to Pavlopoulos views, but focused on the refugee crisis and Greece’s contribution to NATO as one of the most valuable allies for maintaining security in the region.

Pavlopoulos and Obama also discussed topics such as the Cyprus issue, Greek-Turkish relations and the refugee crisis.
