CONSULTATIONS OVER NAME ENDED
President Branko Crvenkovski and Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski wrapped up consultations Friday on the new proposal tabled by UN mediator Matthew Nimetz for settlement of the name issue.
So far, there has been no official statement about the outcome of today's meeting of the president and the prime minister. Macedonia is expected to post a reply alongside objections to mediator Nimetz in the coming period. Both the president and the prime minister share the position that Nimetz's suggestions should undergo serious changes.
Macedonian authorities are unlikely to reject the proposal directly, but rather seek modality on how to implement their objections to the draft.
