Image "Greece will increase the financial support of its northern neighbor and will remove the visa regime if Skopje distances itself from the stubborn position for its name" says Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis in todays interview for 'Apogevmatini'.

"Athens will invest 75 million euros for the highway infrastructure of Corridor 10, which connects the neighboring country with Greece and EU, will invest in business and will gradually remove the visas". says Bakoyannis.

She adds, "Greece wants a solution to the name dispute as soon as possible".

According to Bakoyannis, the chances to find a solution before the elections are very small, but they should increase after June 1st.
