MFA Milososki

We have been prepared for a European solution to the name dispute 15 years and the same thing stands now. However, the problem is Greece’s hidden agenda and desire to dispute our national and language identity through the talks on the name, Macedonian Foreign Minister Antonio Milososki said on Wednesday.

He did not state clearly whether the proposal presented by UN mediator Matthew Nimetz in October, which, as Greece stated, with a few changes, could lead to a compromise resolution, is acceptable to the Macedonian Government. Commenting on Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis’s accusation that the Macedonian Government rouses nationalism in the Balkans, Foreign Minister Milososki stated that Greece has a convincing lead in this field.

“If we talk about nationalism in the Balkans, I think that the Greek Government has much stronger ties with this than the other European Governments,” Milososki assessed.
