The German government has added its voice to the ongoing negotiations between Greece and FYROM and has urged both sides to find a solution in order to pave the way for the latter to begin EU membership talks.

 

In a statement issued a day before Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias is due to meet in Berlin with his German counterpart, Heiko Maas, German Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Adebahr called on Athens and Skopje to take advantage of a “historic opportunity” for an agreement that will have a “positive effect on bilateral relations as well as on regional stability.”

 

The vast majority of Greeks remain firmly opposed to any use of the word ‘Macedonia’ in FYROM’s official name.
