Skopje, May 14, 2013

The US ambassador in Skopje, Paul Volers has praised the engagement of the Albanian Democratic Union for Integration Party (BDI) and the recent visits of its leaders in Athens and Washington for the solution of the name dispute with Greece.

Ambassador Volers considers the visit of the Minister of Integration of FYROM, Fatmir Besimi in Athens and the visit of the head of BDI, Ali Ahmeti in Washington and New York as positive developments.

“I believe that every meeting that has to do with the relations between FYROM and its neighbors or with the issue of the name dispute is productive. This is an issue which must be resolved in the long term. We continue to support this process in the framework of the UNO and I hope that the problem will be solved”, declared the US ambassador during a visit in the region of Pellagonia. /ibna/
