Does anyone know what is Greece's problem? So they have a province called Macedonia. There is also a country people generally refer to as Macedonia or F.Y.R.O.M. (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia). The Greeks claim that allowing the Macedonians to call their country 'Macedonia' (!) implies a claim on their province - even though the Macedonians deny this.
Does Greece have a justifiable concern or are they just using this issue to deflect domestic attention from economic problems such as government plans to reform pensions and the strikes that have been paralysing the country in recent days?
