"Skopje provokes Athens"

U.S. newspaper the Washington Post wrote today that Macedonia has begun the deployment of the statue of Alexander the Great, which seems like a provocation against Greece.

According to this newspaper critics considered the giant sculpture as a waste of money, while Macedonia′s government says it is an important part of rebuilding the city of Skopje.

"Greece and Macedonia are " trapped "in the 20-year dispute over the name, and the controversial Prime Minister, Nikola Gruevski, has regularly open the sensitive historical issue by appointing names of airports, stadiums, streets and he deployed the sculpture in downtown Skopje, WP writes.
