Athens offered a laconic statement on Wednesday over the troubling situation in the neighboring Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), simply noting that the situation remained "fluid" in the land-locked country.
Regarding this week's confirmation by the European Union that Cyprus' EU accession prospects are in no way linked to a political solution on the divided east Mediterranean island, government spokesman Dimitris Reppas said Athens is satisfied with results of the recent EU-Turkey association council meeting in Luxembourg -- where it was stressed that Helsinki summit decisions remained intact.
