  • [01] FM - meetings before Balkan Summit

  • [01] FM - meetings before Balkan Summit

    22/02/2001 14:12:38

    Foreign Minister George Papandreou and his counterparts from Balkan countries will convene for an informal meeting in Skopje on Thursday evening, during which the Greek minister will present Athens' proposals for resolving the crisis in the region. The meeting will also discuss rising violence in southern Serbia and the text of the joint communique that will be adopted at the end of the Summit.

    The Summit itself is due to start on Friday, with an opening statement by the President of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) Boris Trajkovski, and will discuss and adopt a plan to promote regional economic cooperation in southeastern Europe.

    On the sidelines of the Summit, Papandreou is scheduled to meet his Turkish counterpart Ismail Cem on Thursday night to discuss Greek-Turkish bilateral relations overall and to confer on a schedule for an exchange of visits.

    Meetings on the sidelines of the Summit will also be carried out by Prime Minister Costas Simitis, who is due to meet his FYROM counterpart Ljubco Georgievski at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday.

    Foreign ministry officials have stressed, however, that there is no reason to expect any new development on the issue of FYROM's name at this time.
