US Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), speaking on the floor of the US House of Representatives this week, called for an understanding of Greece's positions regarding the festering FYROM "name issue".
The NYC-area veteran Congresswoman, the founder and co-chair of the Caucus on Hellenic issues, reiterated her positions on the same issue and gave her caustic criticism of the Bush administration's recognition of the land-locked republic with its constitutional name in 2004. She pointed directly at the "imperialistic policy" begun by Yugoslav leader Tito in 1944 to take control of Greece's Macedonia province.
