    Impasse in Macedonia name negotiations


    20 August 2009 | 17:07 | Source: FoNet
    ATHENS -- UN envoy Matthew Nimetz said on Wednesday that there is still no agreement between Athens and Skopje in the Macedonian name dispute.

    Nimetz made the comments after meeting with Greek negotiator Adamantios Vassilikis, and appraised that the talks had hit an impasse, Macedonia's Makfax news agency quoted Greek media reports.

    The Greek side told the envoy that they were not satisfied with the ideas he put forward, that were taken to both countries.

    Macedonian negotiator Zoran Jolevski suggested that the proposed name " Republic of North Macedonia" be used only in bilateral communication.

    But Athens insists that this name should be used worldwide for the country it now refers to as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

    Macedonia's constitutional name, the Republic of Macedonia, has been recognized by 125 states. However, the name dispute has blocked the country's NATO and EU membership plans.

    Macedonia, Greece To Resume “Name” Talks


    Skopje | 05 November 2009 | Sinisa-Jakov Marusic

    The UN mediator in the Athens-Skopje “name” talks, Matthew Nimetz is summoning both sides to a fresh round of talks from 16 to 22 November.

    The mediator is in permanent contact with both sides to precise the date for the meeting in New York, the UN said.

    The announcement comes after UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, while visiting Athens on Wednesday, noted that his personal envoy for the name talks was set to restart discussions on the matter, as soon as both parties were ready.

    The UN chief expressed hope that both parties will come to a final solution to the dispute.

    The name talks have been frozen for the past few months in the run up to the 4 October general election in Greece.

    The new initiative comes at a time when both sides face increased international pressure to solve the issue before the December EU council meeting where Skopje hopes to get a date for start of its EU accession talks.

    Greece, who is a long time EU member, says it will veto this move if there is no breakthrough by then.


    “There is a moment of possibility and it won't last very long. Now is the time for settlement,” Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt said to Voice of America - Macedonian language program on Thursday urging for a swift compromise. At the moment Sweden holds the rotating EU Presidency.

    A similar statement came last week from the EU Foreign Policy Chief, Javier Solana.

    Last year, Athens blocked Skopje from entering NATO due to the unresolved row. Athens claims that Skopje’s official name, Republic of Macedonia implies territorial claims towards its own northern province which is also called Macedonia.

    Media speculate that some variations of the name Northern Macedonia, that would distinct the state from the Greek province is still on the table in the UN brokered talks.

    In another step seen as a sign of good will, on Wednesday, Macedonian President Georgi Ivanov invited his Greek counterpart Karolos Papoulias to visit his country.

Tito didnt send Yugoslavian army in Solun and NFO went alone and about 2000 Macedonian soldiers went on liberation of the part of Macedonia, second We always wanted our own state but in 1913 our country was separated in 4 parts, vardar or todays Macedonia went under SHS or Yugoslavia Pirin part went to Bulgaria and the biggest EGEJ part went to Greece, thats what they today call ''Greek'' Macedonia

    Macedonians are happy to be part of the Hellenic culture and state since thousands of years, contrary to some Bulgarian-speaking slavs that decided to fabricate their way into nation-hood. Similar to kemalist Turkey.
