The UN special mediator on the FYROM-Greece name dispute, Cyrus Vance, is scheduled to meet representatives of both countries in New York on Wednesday.
Mr. Vance is expected to tell the two sides he will surrender his UN mandate on the dispute over the Balkan country's use of the name "Macedonia" and report to the Security Council on the course of negotiations, diplomatic sources said.
The talks are based on an interim agreement between the two countries.
The same sources said that Vance will propose the name "Macedonia-Skopje" for use by the neighboring state.
