Macedonia will continue to participate actively in the talks aimed at resolving the differences on the name, despite the fact that Greece violated the Interim Accord with its veto in Bucharest. Also, Macedonia will not accept any proposal that will affect the Macedonian identity. These are the positions that Nikola Dimitrov, Macedonia’s representative in the talks on the name, and Martin Protoger, chief of Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski’s Cabinet, will defend at the meeting with UN mediator Matthew Nimetz in New York today.

According to unofficial reports, Dimitrov and Protoger will ask Nimetz to withdraw some of the proposals contained in the packet of suggestions and ideas that the UN mediator brought to Skopje and Athens approximately 10 days ago.
