Mitchell: The United States practice of silent diplomacy regarding the name dispute


Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia, Wess Mitchell, said the United States continues to play a silent role in the process of resolving the name dispute between Macedonia and Greece.

“We have recently taken a common view, not only for Serbia and Kosovo, but we also work on B andH regarding the name issue between Macedonia and Greece. As I mentioned, part of our team is currently working on this issue, and the United States continues to play a quiet role together with the EU, Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom, encouraging us to find a solution to the name, to see Macedonia as a member of NATO”, said Mitchell when addressing the Heritage Foundation, where he promoted President Donald Trump’s strategy for Europe.

He stressed that the United States is spending time and energy about these areas on a daily basis, as well as resources for the problems of the Western Balkans.

“I think that for some of these problems, which have been dragged for a long time, I do not expect to see it fully resolved soon, but I think that we are making good progress”, said the assistant secretary of state for Europe and Eurasia.

He also said that the United States is actively working to stop the Russian disinformation campaign in the region, starting from the Baltic region, Eastern Europe to the Balkans and Cyprus.

“There is a big challenge with the Russian investments in Cyprus and therefore we are working to stop Russian influence over there and in Southeastern Europe, with stronger military cooperation with such allies as Greece”, Mitchell said.
