Athens on fYRoM 'name issue'

(ANA-MPA) -- The Greek foreign ministry on Wednesday reiterated that Athens remains committed to solving the nagging "name issue" still preventing a complete normalisation of relations with the neighbouring former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (fYRoM).

"Towards this direction, however, there also has to be a response by the government of fYRoM," foreign ministry spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras said during his regular weekly briefing on Wednesday.

In response to press questions, he said there was nothing to new to report over any future visit to the region by UN special mediator Matthew Nimetz, primarily due to a lack of developments on the part of the Skopje government, as he said.
