GREEK POSITION FAR FROM COMPROMISE
Greece's position on the name issue in numerous segments is far from a compromise solution, Foreign Minister Antonio Milosoki said late Thursday after a coordination meeting of state leadership on the course of talks for settling the problem Greece has been having with Macedonia's constitutional name.
Milososki said the President's special representative to the name negotiations, Ambassador Zoran Jolevski, briefed the country's leadership on the Geneva round of talks. He however, denied to present more details, saying that 'it will be unfavorable for the entire process'.
- It was good to have such a meeting. Tomorrow, Ambassador Jolevski will also brief the leaders of main political parties in Macedonia about the course of the negotiations and the positions of both countries. He will present the real Greek position, which in numerous segments is far from a compromise, Milososki said.
He also welcomed the forthcoming visit of UN mediator Matthew Nimetz to Macedonia 'as it offers an opportunity to present our stands.'
Milososki said there were no announcements that Nimetz would present new proposal.
The meeting, conveyed by President Gjorge Ivanov, brought together Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, Vice-Premier Abdulakim Ademi, FM Milososki and Ambassador Jolevski.
