Skopje, April 30 - The Foreign Minister of FYROM Antonio Milososki and the Deputy Assistant of NATO Secretary General for Security Cooperation and Partnership, Robert Simmons, agreed Thursday that FYROM remains qualified for NATO membership with only obstacle, the name row with Greece.
FM Milososki stated in MIA after the meeting, “We have expressed readiness to resume dialogue with Greece under UN auspices. “Macedonia” is ready for a reasonable compromise with Greece, in order to overcome this irrational dispute, so that the region can jointly move forward towards increased cooperation and stability”.
On the other hand, Robert Simmons underlined that the position of NATO member-states regarding FYROM’s accession from the Bucharest Summit was “reiterated at the recent Strasbourg Summit, according to which the country is qualified for membership, but the name issue must be settled first.”
“One of the crucial aspects regarding “Macedonia’s” qualifications for NATO accession is the country’s participation in peacekeeping missions, such as the one in Afghanistan”, added NATO’s representative.
Regarding the book “The Macedonian Issue and Bulgaria – Confidential Documents (1950-1967)”, published by the Greek Society for Macedonian Studies and the Bulgarian State Archives, promoted by Greek FM Dora Bakoyiannis, Milososki said according to MIA, “Macedonian identity does not depend from promotion of sponsored propaganda books, but from the feeling of the Macedonian people, which is clearly demonstrated as one of our traits”.
