‘Macedonia’ name dispute: Decisive hours, encouraging messages

Encouraging messages have been issued ahead of the telephone conversation expected to take place between PM Zoran Zaev and PM Alexis Tsipras to solve the dispute about the use of the name “Macedonia”.

US ambassador in Skopje, Jess Baily said that the US supports a solution which would be in favour of both countries and the region.

“The negotiations between the two countries continue. The US and the EU hope that these negotiations will yield a joint acceptable solution that people have long waited for,” Baily said.
