Nimetz will visit Skopje on February 20-21 to meet President Gjorge Ivanov, Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and Foreign Minister Nikola Poposki. He then plans to move onto Athens.

The meetings are to focus “on current developments related to overcoming differences in the name row with Greece, as well as the dynamics of talks in the coming period,” the Macedonian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
