  • [01] FM meets UN envoy on FYROM name issue

  • [01] FM meets UN envoy on FYROM name issue

    New York (ANA-MPA/P. Panagiotou) -- Greece's foreign minister Dora Bakoyannis met Saturday in New York with the UN secretary general's special envoy on the FYROM name issue, Matthese Nimetz, whom she told that "Greece is expecting the response of the other side", according to foreign ministry spokesman George Koumoutsakos, who was speaking to reporters after the meeting.

    Nimetz, in turn, told reporters that he did not plan to submit new ideas at the present stage, and he also said that he would continue his contacts with the sides considered, while he further referred to his recent meeting in Bucharest with the FYROM president.

    On his meeting with Bakoyannis, Nimetz said that they had reviewed the situation, reiterating that he would continue to provide his services in order to assist the two sides, aiming at finding an opportunity for a solution of the problem "at the right time".

    Asked whether he would submit a new proposal to the two sides, Nimetz replied that he has not had a good experience up to now regarding the issue of proposals.

    According a statement by Koumoutsakos, Bakoyannis met Saturday with Nimetz, for a getting-acquainted meeting, during which the foreign minister reiterated Greece's firm position on the need for finding a mutually acceptable solution to the name issue, and stressing that, in this effort, Greece has shown a constructive stance and that "we are awaiting the response of the other side".

    After her meeting with Nimetz, Bakoyannis went to the Church of the Annunciation of the Virgin (Evangelismos) in Manhattan, where she attended a doxology officiated by Archbishop Demetrios of America.

    Bakoyannis, who is currently in the US on a visit, was due to attend a reception marking the March 25 Greek Independence Day anniversary, to be held at the Greek General Consulate in New York.
