Skopje, 12 September 2013 (MIA) - President Gjorge Ivanov says no agreement has been reached yet in the name dispute following the latest meetings held between UN envoy Matthew Nimetz and Macedonian and Greek officials.
"There is an agreement the name Macedonia to be included in the solution, however both sides still haven't approximated their views. Nimetz's remarks are the reality and we expect Greece to stick to the framework of the negotiations, because there is a defined framework by the United Nations," Ivanov stated on Friday.
The other side always acts with an ultimatum trying its demands to be only met without considering the demands and needs of the other involved side, according to him.
"We are talking about a mutually acceptable solution, therefore we expect Greece to finally abide by the determined framework," President Ivanov said.
Asked whether it had been accepted the name solution to include a geographical determinant with the problem being where to put it, Ivanov reiterated that no solution had been found.
"Those are details. We are talking about proposal which has many nuances. Mr Nimetz needs to find a mutually acceptable resolution taking into account our position as well as Greece's. Those are speculation, the reality now is that there is no solution," Ivanov told reporters in the Skopje municipality of Aerodrom. ba/15:32
