Dimitrov: We have reached a framework for compromise over the name, but we have to work on it


Nikos Kotzias and Nikola Dimitrov negotiated and reached a compromise on the name dispute late night.

“We had a productive meeting, we have a framework that needs to be worked out and currently the legal teams of the two ministries in Athens are working on it. Now, we are planning an important conversation between prime ministers Zaev with Tsipras in the middle of this week, where we hope to cut down some important things from the options that are at play”, Dimitrov told MIA.

The Macedonian Foreign Minister had an informal breakfast this morning with EU foreign ministers and deputies. France and the Netherlands were the strongest in terms of the start of negotiations, as was expected.

“It is nice to know that this is not that simple … Internal consolidation in the EU is complementary and not contrary to the consolidation of the Balkans, and if this historic breakthrough occurs, it will be a chance for all of Europe to be successful. We are not in a situation to demand luxury or to miss out on historic opportunities”, Dimitrov told MIA.
