Skopje, 26 May 2016 (MIA) - The current political developments in Macedonia are regretful, but there is no constructive role for the UN mediator in the name issue until there is a democratically elected government in Skopje, says Matthew Nimetz, mediator in the Macedonia-Greece dispute.
"I believe political leaders in Macedonia should place the national interest before traditional politics and take into consideration what is best for the people", Nimetz told programme "Voice of the People" at "Sonce" TV station.
According to him, leaders must demonstrate maturity and wisdom, act in a constructive way, the sooner the better.
"I sincerely hope that the current political impasse will soon be solved and believe this can be done only by parliamentary elections that meet Przino Agreement criteria. As soon as a democratically elected government is in place, I assure you that my highest priority will be to involve stakeholders in solving the name issue", said Nimetz. ik/12:12
