Dimitrov, Kotzias to meet by end of April; gov

Skopje, 20 April 2018 (MIA) - Government Spokesman Mile Bosnjakovski confirmed Friday that Macedonian and Greek Foreign Ministers, Nikola Dimitrov and Nikos Kotzias respectively, are set to meet by the end of April without confirming the exact date.

"A new meeting will be held by the end of the month but the date is still to be confirmed by the foreign ministers. We are still optimistic, as stated by the Macedonian PM and FM, seeking and expecting a dignified solution," Bosnjakovski told reporters regarding Greek media reports that Dimitrov and Kotzias would meet UN envoy Matthew Nimetz in Vienna on April 25.

Pertaining to the position by the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs that the EU Council has a final say over the start of the accession talks, despite the EC recommendation, Bosnjakovski said the Council should come to a decision in the coming months, but developments in the name talks are resuming according to the planned schedule. ik/13:42
