Greece’s Foreign Ministry strikes positive note on UN talks but cautious on Nimetz

The Foreign Ministry yesterday expressed its readiness to continue with UN-backed talks aimed at solving a dispute between Greece and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) but stopped short of giving a UN mediator its clear support.

«Matthew Nimetz is continuing to operate according to his mandate and of course Greece is participating in this effort in a constructive and active way,» Ministry spokesman Giorgos Koumoutsakos said.

Koumoutsakos was responding to a journalist’s question about whether the Greek government still trusts Nimetz in his role following some ambiguous comments and criticism of the historic significance of Alexander the Great.
