Fitting Greece into the puzzle

The front-page article "World Pressure Mounts to Recognize Macedonia," Dec. 1, unfairly belittles the position of Greece. Greece is one of the few countries in the Balkans that has no desire to annex a part of any other nation; it would like not to have to defend one more border.

Greece is a small country, not at all secure in its boundaries. It is no coincidence that Turkey recognized the would-be Republic of Macedonia. Turkey threatens Greek ownership of the Aegean Islands and actively rejects those provisions in the treaty concerning control of the Aegean Sea. Sam Polites, Washington
