Working groups from Macedonia and Greece will synchronize the new confidence measures

Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias, during his visit to Skopje on Thursday, in addition to his meeting with the Macedonian Foreign Minister, Nikola Dimitrov, he will meet with President Gjorge Ivanov, as well as with Deputy Prime Minister for EU Integration, Bujar Osmani, “Meta” has learned.


Kotzias will arrive in Skopje by car will immediately before the planned meetings. The reason for this way of traveling is to avoid landing in Skopje’s airport “Alexander the Great”.

As Meta reported earlier, the name dispute will not be the topic of Dimitrov and Kotzias’s talks, but confidence-building measures and their implementation so far. Before the visit of the Greek Foreign Minister in Skopje, we learned, a working group from the Macedonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs will leave for Athens where they will express their views regarding the new package of measures to improve the bilateral economic, transport and energy relations.

Kotzias’s visit to Skopje, which comes after his meeting in Brussels with the United Nations mediator for the name dispute, Matthew Nimetz, is another attempt to feel both sides’ view of a possible settlement concerning the open issue. Nimetz, after meeting with the Greek Foreign Minister, said there was a “new impulse” in the effort to find a solution to the problem, and Prime Minister, Zoran Zaev in Durrës said he expects the mediator to submit new proposals to solve the dispute by the end of the year.
