UN envoy Matthew Nimetz is optimistic about name dispute between Athens and Skopje

The UN envoy in the Greek-Macedonian name issue, Matthew Nimetz, said he is optimistic for the name dispute between Skopje and Athens and he believes that the two sides can overcome their differences with consistency and real dialog.

He said, however, that each side should take into account the interests of the other.

He further said: “The UN resolutions speak about handling the people’s identity. I believe it is they who determine identity. However, it is apparent that when determining identity, you should respect the identity of others, especially of your neighbors”.
