[B]Macedonian Waterpolo Team held at Greek Border [/B]

The Macedonian national waterpolo team is held at the Greek border being denied entry. The reason is the Macedonian insignia and 'MKD' code the national waterpolo players have on their warm-ups.

At the moment it isn't known whether the Macedonian team will play Greece as part of the waterpolo world league. MINA finds the Mak Waterpolo federation will not replace its player's warmups to satisfy the bizarre request from Greece's border authorities.

If the waiting at the border continues, (3 hours have passed), the national team will return to Skopje and inform the waterpolog governing body of the incident.

In the first match of this year's waterpolo league, Macedonia lost to Croatia 9-7, while Greece lost to Russia 9-6.

The match Greece v Macedonia is scheduled for Tuesday at 17:30 in Athens.

[B]EU Council set to decide over Macedonia accession talks date[/B]


Brussels, December 7 (MIA) - EU Foreign Ministers are set to define Monday conclusions regarding the European Commission recommendation on a date for beginning of Macedonia's Union accession negotiations.

Although majority of EU members support the start of negotiations, the chances for determination of a date are slim due to Greece's condition to prior closure of the name row. There is a possibility that foreign ministers leave the decision to the heads of governments at the December 10-11 summit.

[B]According to latest information coming from Brussels, the most realistic option at the moment is delay in the determination of a date, thus avoiding the consequences from a possible Greek veto. [/B]It is contemplated that Macedonia's progress is noted and saluted, accompanied by a recommendation for an accession talks date in the future.

The conclusions might also include a recommendation for Macedonia and Greece to work more intensively on settling the name problem. This could mean that a date could be given at an EU summit in the course of 2010, with the first one scheduled in March.

Delay the date just so Greece does not have to veto? so This Decision is based on covering Greece's pathetic and embaresing actions. Does this club have balls or what.

Also this thing about Macedonia,s progress is noted and saluted, They can wipe there ass with the reports and eat it.



Here is my salute to the EU,

It doesnt work that way, they either give us a date or Greece vetoes us and then we will consider our options. If they have the balls to use a veto then they can expect consequences to come out of that.

I think if they veto us this time we should definitely pull out of the negotiations and change our flag back, the only thing is i want the EU to do is give us the exact reason should they decide not to give us a date. Changing our name was not an EU benchmark and they cant use good neighborly relations again because we've never stood in the way or dictated anything to Greece, if they wanna be man enough and veto us for the second time then we have to do something about it.

Guys, some of the headings that might find their way on this thread should be given the attention they deserve in separate threads .... eg. [B]Greece warned about credit rating[/B]
