FYROM Vice PM will visit Athens to discuss name issue

FYROM Vice Prime Minister Teuta Arifi and her Greek counterpart, Theodoros Pangalos, are to meet on Wednesday in Athens in a move to revive moribund talks on the ‘name’ dispute.

The meeting of the senior politicians will be the first formal contact between officials from two countries since Greece formed a government of national unity in November.

Arifi is expected to elaborate Macedonia’s hopes of joining NATO and EU and its expectations that Greece will not impede the moves following the December 5 judgment of the International Court of Justice, ICJ, in The Hague.
