‘No reprisals’ stance

It is absurd that Greece will not react to the recognition of the «Republic of Macedonia.» The attitude of «no reprisals» has contributed to the constant violations of Greek air space by Turkey, the pending recognition of the Turkish-held north of Cyprus and the fact that the recognition by the US of the «Republic of Macedonia» and the reaction by Greece (such as it was) have been totally ignored by the US and European press. Unfortunately, the policy of accommodation has rendered Greece irrelevant, even to its own interests. A. MAVRELLIS, Berryville, VA.
