‘Nowhere near a so­lu­tion,’ says FYROM’s FM

Greece and the For­mer Yu­goslav Repub­lic of Mace­do­nia (FYROM) are nowhere near a so­lu­tion to the name dis­pute, the Balkan statelet’s for­eign min­is­ter, Nikola Po­poski, said on Satur­day. “We are fur­ther away from a so­lu­tion than we were a few years ago. I wish I were in a po­si­tion to say that we are close to leav­ing this is­sue be­hind us, but re­al­ity man­dates that we re­main par­tic­u­larly cau­tious,” Po­poski told Skopje’s Fak­tor web­site. In the same in­ter­view, the FYROM of­fi­cial blamed the gov­ern­ment in Athens for lack of progress in the ne­go­ti­a­tions, while adding that he was still wait­ing for a fresh pro­posal from United Na­tions spe­cial me­di­a­tor Matthew Nimetz.
