Kurz: Ratification of Prespes deal a ‘truly historical’ event


Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has welcomed the ratification by the Greek Parliament of a deal normalizing relations between Athens and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), calling it a “truly historical” event.

Reaching a compromise on the long-standing dispute will benefit people in both countries, Kurz said.

He added that the deal will open FYROM’s door to membership of the European Union, which Austria “fully supports.”
