UN’s Nimetz: Issues remain in FYROM name dispute, talks to continue


Unresolved issues remain in talks between Athens and Skopje for a solution to a long-standing dispute over FYROM's name and talks will continue, United Nations mediator Matthew Nimetz said on Friday.

Nimetz was speaking in Vienna after talks with the foreign ministers of both countries.

"A series of meetings will continue in the future… what I can say is that there are difficult issues pending which must be resolved, but in my opinion there is big improvement in various issues," Nimetz said, in comments translated into Greek.

"We are working constructively, we had constructive meetings and that allows us to be optimistic for the future," he said. [Reuters]
