  • [01] FM, PASOK leader confer ahead of meetings with Nimetz

    Foreign minister Dora Bakoyannis met Wednesday morning with main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou, ahead of their separate meetings later with UN special mediator on the FYROM name issue Matthew Nimetz, who arrived in Athens following talks in Skopje with the FYROM leadership.

    Bakoyannis briefed Papandreou on the developments concerning the FYROM name issue, while the PASOK leader reiterated his party's steadfast positions on the issue.

    PASOK has criticised the government of a 'contradictory' policy with respect to Nimetz's initial initiatives on the FYROM name issue in 2005, and believes that Greece is in a more disadvantageous position following the US government's recognition of FYROM as 'Macedonia' in 2004.

    PASOK has called on the government for tough bargaining on the FYROM name issue, aiming at an international name for the neighbouring country that would reflect the "geographical realities" of the region and would be used globally for that country, rather than an "international name within a dual name".

    Bakoyannis was due to meet with Nimetz shortly after her discussion with Papandreou, while the PASOK leader was scheduled to meet the UN envoy at 11:00 a.m.
