FYROM leader upbeat on name talks


The head of the junior coalition in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia’s (FYROM) government senses “readiness and good will” in Greece for a solution to the name dispute between the two countries.

Ali Ahmeti, leader of the Democratic Union for Integration, made the comments after holding talks in Athens on Friday with Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias.

Ahmeti said he saw “readiness and good will for a solution and a compromise on the part of the Greek foreign minister.”

Kotzias met his counterpart from FYROM, Nikola Poposki, in Athens in mid-December.
