The United Nations special mediator, Matthew Nimetz, will meet next week with officials from Greece and FYROM in a bid to end the dispute of the word ‘Macedonia’ in FYROM’s official name. It is hoped that the UN’s involvement could help to find a solution to a dispute that has been ongoing for over two decades.
Nimetz will meet with Adamantios Vasilakis and Vasko Naumovski separately for talks on November 20th and 21st, FYROM’s Prime Minister Zoran Zaev announced.
Meanwhile, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias met with his FYROM counterpart Nikola Dimitrov in Brussels.
The chances of a solution have increase following the victory of the Socialist party of FYROM’s prime minister in last month’s local elections.
