Following coordinated action by Greek deputies participating in NATO's Parliamentary Assembly Plenum, the publication of a map in which the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) was referred to as "Macedonia" has been thwarted.

The deputies, George Haralambopoulos (PASOK), Evangelos Antonaros (New Democracy) and Ioannis Korantis (Popular Orthodox Rally-LAOS), protested to the Plenum's secretariat, that is convening in Warsaw these days, and succeeded in having the map removed.

The map came to the attention of the Greek deputies in time, who reacted jointly and effectively, as was stressed in their joint statement.
