  • [01] Congo to use FYROM term

  • [01] Congo to use FYROM term

    The Republic of the Congo will use the term 'Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia' (FYROM) in both bilateral relations and at international level, according to a Joint Communique signed by Greek deputy foreign minister Yannis Valinakis and Congo minister of foreign affairs and international cooperation Antipas Mbusa Nyamwisi following a meeting in Quebec on Sunday night on the sidelines of the 12th Francophone summit.

    In substance, this means that The Congo has retracted its recognition of FYROM as 'Macedonia' several years ago, and comes just a few days after a similar action by Mexico, again after a meeting by Valinakis with Mexico's foreign undersecretary Juan Manuel Gomez Robledo in New York on Friday on the sidelines of the 63d session of the UN General Assenly

    Gomez Robledo underlined that the Government of Mexico fully supports the United Nations efforts to find a mutually acceptable solution on the subject. He also assured that, pending settlement of the difference that has arisen over the name of that State, Mexico will provisionally refer to that State as the "Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia", in conformity with the relevant Security Council Resolutions 817/93 and 845/93, for all international and bilateral purposes.
