Guterres: The Prespa agreement is a testimony to the power of diplomacy, dialogue and compromises

Antonio Guterres

In a video address to the Conference on Peace and Sustainable Development in Athens, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, indicated that six years ago the governments of Greece and North Macedonia, led by their Prime Ministers Alexis Tsipras and Zoran Zaev, united to help in the removal of the long-standing obstacle to a future of peace and stable development, after which the Prespa Agreement was reached.

"The Prespa agreement is a testimony to the power of diplomacy, dialogue and compromises." I want to acknowledge the dedicated intercession of my personal MP at the time, Matthew Nimitz. The agreement not only resolved the name dispute, but also opened up opportunities for new opportunities for growth, controlled exchanges and regional partnerships. As we commemorate this momentous event, we must find ways to recommit ourselves to the principles that led to this vital achievement. We will do that by building an environment of trust and mutual understanding, by promoting cross-border cooperation for stable investments, social inclusion and environmental protection," said Guterres.

The international conference on peace and sustainable development, organized by the Alexis Tsipras Institute and the Zoran Zaev Foundation - One Society for All, is being held today and tomorrow, and the participation of heads of state, European commissioners, academics, former heads of state and experts from more areas.
