Vassilakis, diplomat who represented Greece in the name dispute with Macedonia, dies aged 79

Greek diplomat Adamantios Vassilakis, who was named as their representative in the decades long name dispute with Macedonia, has died aged 79.

Vassilakis represented Greece in the European Union and in the United Nations.
