Today, the DUI MP Artan Grubi held a working lunch in New York with United Nations mediator Matthew Nimetz, announced the cabinet of the Parliamentary Committee on European Affairs. At the meeting, Grubi conveyed the impressions from the previous meetings in Washington, and discussed the process of the name dispute.

“The views of the two prime ministers provoke optimism that the solution is closer than ever. According to Grubi and DUI, the final solution that is set to be achieved must be dignified and mutually acceptable. The compromise must enable Macedonia’s unconditional and urgent integration into NATO and the EU, which will result in sustainable peace and stability in our country and the region, and together with systemic reforms, it represents a prerequisite for economic development and social well-being. DUI fully supports Mr Nimetz’s efforts and all the negotiators in the name dispute with our southern neighbor”, read the statement.
