Dimitrov and Kotzias to meet UN’s Nimetz on May 24-25 in New York

Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikola Dimitrov on May 24-25 in New York will hold a meeting with his Greek counterpart Nikos Kotzias with the UN special envoy, Matthew Nimetz, also in attendance, Macedonia’s Foreign Ministry announced on Sunday.

The meeting was also announced in a statement by the Greek Foreign Ministry around the same time as with that of the Macedonian ministry, MIA reports from Athens.

This meeting could probably be the last chance for an agreement, To Vima’s online edition says in a comment.

“The meeting is very important and could play a key role in the negotiations. It could probably offer one last chance for making progress after the ‘failure’ with the proposal ‘Ilinden Macedonia’ and going back to the five proposals presented by Matthew Nimetz. The two name proposals that dominate are ‘New Macedonia’ and ‘Upper Macedonia’ and it is most likely that the talks will revolve round these scenarios,” writes the Greek newspaper.
