Greece, FYROM Officials to Meet in December for FYROM Name Talks

Greece and FYROM representatives will meet in Brussels, Belgium, on Dec. 11-12 to start talks on the “Macedonia” name issue and discuss ways to solve this pending issue, FYROM Prime Minister Zoran Zaev told reporters.
The talks were initially set for end-November. UN envoy Matthew Nimetz, however, decided to reschedule the meeting with two countries’ representatives for next month.
Both FYROM and Greece have voiced their will and commitment to engage in talks and find a solution. The FYROM government expressed confidence that the talks on name issue, mediated by Nimetz, would produce a way out to the long-standing name dispute.
Zaev told reporters late Thursday, after meeting the visiting Thessaloniki Mayor Yiannis Boutaris, that time had come for FYROM and Greece to find a solution to the name contest. Zaev also expressed confidence that the solution on this issue would be achieved within a year.
Boutaris was criticized when, during his meeting with the FYROM PM he referred to the neighboring country with its constitutional name “Macedonia”.
Efforts for a solution have intensified in recent months with the FYROM government declaring it is to build good neighborly relations and solve issues that hamper its European Union integration.
