Greece - The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

Greece-FYROM

The Department of Political Affairs provides staff support and guidance to the Personal Envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General for talks aimed at resolving the name dispute between Greece and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Negotiations on the name dispute began in 1993 and have continued since 1999 under the auspices of Personal Envoy Matthew Nimetz. While no solution has been reached so far, both parties have cooperated in the process and urged the continuation of the efforts of the Secretary-General and his Personal Envoy.
