GRUEVSKI - BAKOYANNIS UNANOUNCED MEETING
"There is still no progress for the name, nor flexibility from the Greek side", said Macedonian prime minister, Nikola Gruevski after meeting Dora Bakoyannis yesterday.
This first meeting between Gruevski and Bakoyannis was held at the meeting of European national parties in Brussels, Belgium.
"There was no progress, but we can say that the fact that we have met, is allready a progress", Gruevski said.
He added that he anounced the Macedonian position to Bakoyannis, which the Greeks find unacceptable, while Bakoyannis explained him the Greek position, which is unacceptable for Macedonia.
The meeting was also attended by the American ambassador in NATO, Viktoria Nuland, who pointed out to Gruevski and Bakoyannis that there has to be a solution before the 2nd of April.
MD: Will this issue ever end? Probably not, since Macedonians have problems with Greeks thousands of years, but the chance to see Greece taking a step back is increasing more and more everyday. Also a high US think-thank has stated that Greece should moderate its unreasonable stance and reach a compromise with Macedonia.
