FYROM’s Zaev set to warm up ties with Greece

FYROM’s Zaev set to warm up ties with Greece

The prime minister of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) reiterated his will on Tuesday to reach a solution with Greece following more than two decades of disputes over his country’s name.

A day after UN-brokered talks restarted in Brussels, Zoran Zaev said officials from Greece and FYROM were working “to reconfirm their will of resuming essential talks … to reach a solution.”

Zaev, in power since spring, has vowed to improve relations with Greece, which blocked FYROM from joining NATO in 2008 under the name “Macedonia.” [AP]
