[Ticker] Macedonia name deal threatens Greek government

Greek defence minister Panos Kammenos threatened on Wednesday to pull his nationalist Independent Greeks (ANEL) party from the government if a name deal with the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) is put to a vote in the parliament, rather than a referendum. “I will not allow this deal to go through,” he told the Greek internet radio. Greek MPs are set to vote on the deal in September.
