The United Nations, Greece and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) examined possibilities of accelerating negotiations for a final solution to the issue of FYROM's name, a UN spokesman said here yesterday.
The two sides "evaluated the situation and examined the possibilities of speeding up negotiations" in the meeting they held in New York on Tuesday, under the auspices of the UN's special envoy Cyrus Vance, UN spokesman Fred Eckhardt said.
Greece's permanent ambassador to the UN, Christos Zaharakis, and FYROM representative Ivan Tosevski will meet again in early August.
