    The Greek government has repeatedly stressed that there will either be a comprehensive agreement resolving all aspects of the dispute or there will be no agreement.
    Tzanakopoulos reiterated that domestic use of the new name in FYROM and a constitutional amendment changing the name of the country are necessary conditions for a solution.
    “When an agreement has been reached, we shall inform the political parties and the Greek people, and there will be a broad, exhaustive discussion,” the spokesman said.

    Tzanakopoulos said that main opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis should have taken a clear position in favour of a settlement, based on the conditions set by Greece, and that instead he allied himself with the extreme right wing of New Democracy, which has entrapped him.
