US official to boost name talks between Athens and Skopje

US Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs, Philip Reeker, will visit Skopje on Wednesday on a mission to boost stalled Greek-Macedonian “name” talks.

The UN mediator in the dispute, Matthew Nimetz, on Monday and Tuesday in New York is to meet separately with Greek and Macedonian negotiators after a year of stalled talks between the two sides.

The talks come one month after the International Court of Justice, ICJ, ruled that Greece had breached an interim deal, brokered by the UN in 1995, when it blocked Macedonia’s attempt to join NATO in 2008.
