NIMITZ TO PROPOSE DOUBLE NAME ON 19TH
A double name will be the final proposal that UN mediator Matthew Nimitz will present to Greece and Macedonia on 19 February, Greek daily Kathimerini said citing diplomats.
The paper said the new and most probably the final proposal will not differ from the framework set out in early November 2007. The so-called double-name formula foresees that one name be used in international communication and other name to be used in bilateral communication with Greece.
"If Greece rejects Nimitz's new proposal and continues to threaten Macedonia's entry into NATO with eventual veto, the country will turn into black sheep at the Alliance's summit in Bucharest, Kathimerini daily said.
MD: We'll see with what he will come up this time, but we don't really think the proposal will be accepted. Macedonia is just Macedonia and it should stay like that. Basta!
