LEADERS COORDINATE POSITION ON NIMITZ PROPOSAL
Macedonia’s position has been coordinated and will be presented to mediator Matthew Nimitz at the next meeting, Foreign Minister Antonio Milososki said Sunday after a meeting of state, political leadership.
Macedonia will keep participating in the negotiation process, Milososki said, adding that he cannot announce the details before they are presented to Nimetz.
I believe we have strong 'for' and 'against' arguments that will set basis for further discussions within this process, Milososki said.
Today's three-hour meeting, initiated by Prime Nikola Gruevski, was held behind closed doors. Also present were President Branko Crvenkovski, leaders of SDSM - Radmila Sekerinska, DPA - Menduh Tachi, and Foreign Minister Antonio Milososki.
During the meeting, DUI leader Ali Ahmeti was replaced by party Vice-President Xhevad Ademi, as he left for Tirana to attend a debate on Kosovo.
Today’s meeting was covered by a great number of local journalists, accompanied by crews of several Greek electronic media.
State officials and party leaders already had a meeting on Nimitz's proposal last Wednesday.
