By Dr. Marios Panagiotis Efthymiopoulos* The agreement between two sides, Greece and Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), reinstates the regional global importance and foreign interests, politically, economically and culturally. Foreign powers deem as important of the geo-strategic, economic and energy location of the two countries, notwithstanding, other global limitless opportunities. The Global Strategic Framework. In the world of global politics, leaders lead and take decisions considering global benefits but also losses; considering, not only the national or local but also the global framework of strategic, political and business cultures; A “Game of Thrones” is created. Who comes first, with which strategic tools and sound support, wins; How to solve disputes, such as the name and sub-sequent disputes between the two states, matters; How to progress and face possible emerging regional and global challenges, matters. And we are already facing disintegrating Balkans and a regional Turkey that seeks to challenge just everything and no matter what. Depending on variables, symmetrical or asymmetrical, we will be lead to possible outcomes. We will need to somehow allow, actual global regional growth and development of the region to take place. Alternative is to render FYROM unstable, with all possible domino-effects at sight, thus, leaning towards Greece but also towards Bulgaria, Kosovo, Serbia, Albania and Turkey, which latest, craves for such a case. But we should be aware of the cost of allowance. There is a Locality vs Globality aspect value attached to both signatories at this time. Both sides of the signatories, signal a possible window of opportunity that seems open for Globality rather Locality. One would wonder for what and at which cost? Either sides, have ignited a process that is expected to constructively develop, with sole, at this time, certain winners to be, the global and main regional actors; future organizations to be, involved with directly and indirectly with strategic business investments, cultures and foreign direct investments in the region with minimal assets for the nationals involved. We therefore should be cautious on the agreement sides politically rather than legally and steps that will be taken onwards.
