Σουηδός πρεσβευτής στα Σκόπια: Η αλλαγή εξουσίας στην Ελλάδα είναι μια θετική εξέλιξη για τις διαπραγματεύσεις για το όνομα (της πΓΔΜ)

Διαφαίνεται ένα αισιόδοξο κλίμα στα Σκόπια ενόψει του Ευρωπαϊκού Συμβουλίου για την προώθηση των συνομιλιών για το όνομα της πρώην Γιουγκοσλαβικής Δημοκρατίας της Μακεδονίας.
