Kotzias to arrive in Skopje

The Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias is expected to arrive today afternoon for a two-day visit to Macedonia. The Greek delegation will arrive at the international airport Skopje.

Meetings are scheduled with the head of the Macedonian diplomacy Nikola Dimitrov, and other senior state officials. As the Macedonian foreign minister announced, the two ministers will discuss the positions of both sides, after both Greece and Macedonia have exchanged draft agreements to resolve the name dispute, which Dimitrov said differed from one another.

Dimitrov and Kotzias will hold a new meeting on March 30 in Vienna with the UN mediator in the name negotiations, Matthew Nimetz. According to the Greek media, the negotiations are entering a crucial phase after the proposals are submitted by both sides.
