President Ivanov meets UN special envoy Nimetz

President Gjorge Ivanov held talks Sunday with the UN special envoy for the negotiations between Macedonia and Greece on the name issue, Matthew Nimetz.


Ivanov-Nimetz meeting reviewed the current status of the negotiations on settling the matter, the President’s Cabinet said in a press release.

Ivanov commended the constructiveness of the measures for building confidence between the two countries.

The Republic of Macedonia will keep participating in the UN-mediated process, Ivanov said, notifying the need of creating favorable climate for better understanding and respect.

‘For many years Macedonia has been contributing to building confidence between the two countries and societies. Both sides should offer additional impetus for settling the matter, which is vital for the stability and prosperity of the entire region,’ Ivanov told Nimetz.

The UN-sponsored name negotiations must run strictly within the set frame: Un resolutions; the 1995 Interim Accord and the 2011 ruling of the International Court of Justice, Ivanov said, notifying the need of respecting the international law
