Greece's position vis-à-vis the violence-marred election on Sunday in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) was again reiterated on Tuesday, this time by Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis, who spoke on the sidelines of a Women Leaders Working Group conference in an Athens seaside resort.
"... Greece is observing, with great concern, the democratic deficit recorded during the election in FYROM. We will await the election process to conclude, before carefully examining all of the reports by election observer. We sincerely regret the way this election was conducted. We will await final results and then state our position," Bakoyannis emphasised.
