Skopje, 20 November 2017 (MIA) - For the first time in a long time, Macedonia and Greece are fostering excellent cordial relations based on intensive visits and mutual communication, Prime Minister Zoran Zaev told a news conference in Skopje held alongside visiting EU Commissioner Johannes Hahn.
Asked about the chances to settle the name dispute with Greece as a way to unblock Macedonia's bid to integrate into the EU and NATO, Zaev said the positive climate established recently with Athens was heralding a sense of 'optimism', which in his opinion should be taken advantage of in order to finally settle the matter.
"I believe, and I've been told, that positive atmosphere is prevailing in the media and amongst the citizens. It gives us the right, as serious politicians, to use the positive momentum and to find a solution to the issue Greece is having with our constitutional name," Zaev told the press conference on Monday. ba/16:47
