Ambassador Angelov met with Greek FM Kotzias


Macedonian Ambassador to Athens, Darko Angelov, has asked the newly appointed Greek Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Kotsias for an introductory meeting on Friday.

MIA correspondent from Athens reports that during the meeting Angelov will also present his credentials to Kotzias. Topics of discussion at the meeting with include an initial exchange of positions, and well as a discussion about the bilateral cooperation between the two countries.

Last month, Ambassador Angelov met with then Deputy Foreign Minister Dimitris Kourkoulas, but was unable to present his credentials due to the pre-­election period in Greece.

Macedonia and Greece remain locked in an over two-decades-long issue, in which Greece demands that Macedonia will change its name.

Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski made the initial contact with newly elected Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Tuesday, when the two also discussed the name issue.
