US senior official, Victoria Nuland declared that she hopes on a solution of FYROM’s name dispute with the new Greek government.

“We’re hoping on restoring discussions with the Greek government and try and solve this dispute, which has lasted several years and for which, Macedonia is not able to become an EU and NATO member. We continue to hope on a good solution, because overcoming this accession problem is not only in the Greek interest. We’re hoping to have a discussion with them”, declared Nuland.

According to her, the stability of the Balkan depends on the continuation of the open doors policy for EU and NATO. Nuland announced concrete measures to help the Balkan reduce its dependence from the Russian gas, sent through Ukraine. /ibna/
