Thessaloniki, 13 July 2017 (MIA) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Thursday that the name dispute must be resolved before Macedonia can join the European Union and NATO.
Speaking during a joint press conference with Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic ahead of a trilateral summit of Greek, Serbian and Bulgarian leaders in Thessaloniki, Tsipras said that there are “decisions of the European Council and the NATO summit that say that the name issue must be resolved first, in a mutually acceptable way”, daily "Kathimerini" reports.
He also said that the foreign ministers of both countries are in regular contact, while Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias will meet with United Nations envoy Matthew Nimitz, who is mediating the talks over the name issue. ik/16:39
