Greek Ambassador leaves inauguration in protest after Siljanovska-Davkova refers to country as Macedonia


The Greek Ambassador to North Macedonia, Sophia Philippidou, left Parliament’s plenary hall where Gordana Siljanovska-Davkova’s inauguration was being held on Sunday in protest of the fact that Siljanovska-Davkova did not use the country’s constitutional name while being sworn in.
Outraged that the new Macedonian President Gordana Siljanovska-Davkova used the name Macedonia instead of “Severna” during the swearing-in, the Greek ambassador to the country Sophia Philippidou wrote to the Parliament box on Sunday immediately after Siljanovska-Davkova swore that she would protect sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of Macedonia.
Philippidou did not stay until the end of the formal parliamentary session to hear that Siljanovska-Davkova dedicated her speech to women, whom she said she wanted to inspire.
