Skopje, 6 February 2018 (MIA) - We are prepared for a geographic qualifier, said Prime Minister Zoran Zaev on Tuesday while highlighting the importance of the name issue and the need to give talks a chance.
"I want our citizens and the people of neighboring Greece to know the details, but most of all I would like to see success in the negotiating process. That is why we should use caution, in order to give the process a chance for success. In this context, I can say that we are prepared for a geographic qualifier, but will stop there, because this is a crucial issue and give a chance to the talks to reach a solution," PM Zaev told a joint press conference with EU Ambassador Samuel Zbogar.
He added that any idea that could lead to a solution, be it a draft of an international agreement that would confirm the aspects that are more or less resolved, such as symbols MK, MKD etc, would be the foundation for the continuation of the process under the aegis of the UN through mediator Matthew Nimetz, but also using bilateral meetings between the countries' PMs and FMs.
"We should use everything that helps the process of finding a solution. We are publicizing all events, there are discussions among institutions and political parties, at the same time focused on the essential steps that would lead to a final solution of this sensitive problem, in the interest of both countries," stressed Zaev. ik/18:33
