Main opposition New Democracy (ND) shadow foreign minister George Koumoutsakos stated on Monday that the revision of FYROM’s constitution “makes the already harmful Prespes Agreement even worse.”

Koumoutsakos said that the amendments made violate the agreement in three ways: they maintain irredentism, clearly refer to a “Macedonian State” and demand that Greece first ratifies the Agreement and FYROM’s accession to NATO first before the revision of the Constitution goes into effect.

The Athens-Macedonian News Agency (AMNA) (Greek: Αθηναϊκό-Μακεδονικό Πρακτορείο Ειδήσεων, AΜΠΕ) is a Greece-based news service. It is a public entity anonymous company. It was founded in 2008 as the Athens News Agency - Macedonian Press Agency S.A. (ANA-MPA SA), under a presidential decree which merged the Athens News Agency (ANA SA) and the Macedonian Press Agency (MPA SA).
