UN mediator on FYROM name issue due in Athens Friday

ANA-MPA/The UN Secretary General’s special mediator on the FYROM name issue, Ambassador Matthew Nimetz, is due in Athens on Friday for talks with the Greek government, following a similar visit to FYROM, which he wound up on Thursday in talks with FYROM prime minister Nikola Gruevski.

   In statements to the press after his meeting with Gruevski, Nimetz stressed that the main item of the negotiation process is the name issue.

   “From my viewpoint, the main issue of the talks is the country’s name, as stipulated in the UN Resolutions and the Interim Agreement. All other matters that have arisen during the negotiations all these years should, I believe, be considered secondary,” Nimetz said.
