U.S. Mobilizing Support for Bosnia

May 22, 1993

The anti-Greek attitude of The Times manifested itself again in the May 12 editorial, "Now the Macedonia Option?"

Aside from the unanswered question of why injecting foreign troops into the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, or FYROM (the name by which that country was accepted by the U.N.) would help bring peace to Bosnia, which has no common border with it, your editorial contained a blatant inaccuracy: You state that Greece "may well rather see Macedonia absorbed into Serbia than independent on Greece's border." Either the editorial board is misinformed or is deliberately distorting the truth: Greece has taken the leadership in guaranteeing FYROM's borders and asking other neighboring countries to do the same.

Having seen the Greek population victimized by the illegal Turkish invasion of the island of Cyprus in 1974, Greece opposes any border changes by force.
