Name issue discussed during Mogherini's visit to Athens

Turkey, Cyprus and Macedonia's name issue were tackled during Friday's discussions of High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias, MIA reports from Athens.


After the meetings, Mogherini highlighted the Balkans' importance and said the region would be EU's priority. She voiced assurance for progress in the name talks and the Pristina-Belgrade dialogue in the coming months.

FM Kotzias said Greece fully supported EU's efforts over the accession of the Western Balkans. He reiterated that Athens supported Skopje's EU accession once the name issue was resolved.
He also expressed hope that the name issue settlement would be easier compared to the past, taking into consideration the change of power in Macedonia.
