FM Lavrov hopes name deal will be supported by the people of Macedonia and Greece

Belgrade, 13 June 2018 (MIA) - Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said he hoped that the deal over the new name of Macedonia would be in the interest of Athens and Skopje and that it would be endorsed by the citizens of the two countries, Sputnik reports from Belgrade.

"We have always said that we are in favor of finding a solution to this issue, without external interference and without some artificial conditions. We have been saying that we will support a solution that is in the interest of both Greece and Macedonia after securing overwhelming public support. I hope the deal reached yesterday is exactly that, Minister Lavrov said at a news conference in Moscow alongside his Greek counterpart Nikos Kotzias.

On his part, Kotzias said that Greece's foreign policy was 'active and democratic'. According to him, under these conditions the Greek government had solved the issue in order to end the long-running name dispute. ba/14:33
