THE STRENGTH OF HISTORY
Stettinius' views were endorsed 48 years later by Henry Kissinger.
The former Secretary of State was asked at the annual meeting of Management Centre Europe held in Paris on June about his views on the Skopje authorities claim to be internationally recognized as the «Republic of Macedonia». Kissinger has this to say:
"Look, I believe that Greece is right to object and I agree with Athens. The reason is that I know History which is not the case with most of the others including most of the Government and Administration in Washington.
The strength of the Greek case is that of the History which I must say that Athens have not used so far with success".
