  • [01] Nimetz on FYROM name talks

    The UN secretary general's special mediator on the FYROM name issue, Matthew Nimetz, said that both sides, in their recent private meetings, had encouraged him to continue the process for finding a solution to the FYROM name issue, although the differences remain.

    He said this in statements on Greek state television late Monday night.

    The Nimetz statement came after statements by FYROM prime minister Nikola Gruevski in favor of a dual name, which were later echoed by FYROM foreign minister Antonio Milososki.

    "I prefer not to comment on public statements. I will say that, in the private meetings, I heard the views of the two sides, directly from the two sides, which encouraged me to continue the process, which is underway, regardless of the fact that the differences remain," Nimetz said.

    Nimetz had separate meetings in Skopje on Thursday with Gruevski and FYROM president Branko Crvenkovski, and in Thessaloniki on Friday with Greece's negotiator in the name talks Ambassador Adamantios Vassilakis.
