The Prime Ministers of Greece and FYROM are now responsible for reaching a solution to the FYROM naming dispute, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias stated after his meeting with FYROM’s FM Nikola Dimitrov in Brussels on Monday. More specifically, Nikos Kotzias said that the talks of the two Foreign Ministers have ended, and now the Prime Ministers of the two countries have to take over, as the negotiation is being concluded also at the level of experts in legal issues.

We are at the “final stage”, Nikola Dimitrov said on his part, adding that a definitive solution can be reached by the EU Summit on June 28. Government sources stress that the two Foreign Ministers have made significant progress, however the negotiations are not over; on the contrary, they are at a turning point.
