At Washington’s insistence, Macedonia likely to change name in 3-4 months


The issue of Macedonia choosing a provisional name and its NATO accession may be resolved in three or four months, a European diplomatic source told RIA.

Last month, the Macedonian foreign minister said that the country would consider new proposals on its provisional name due to Greece opposing its NATO membership.

The source told RIA that the talks had accelerated sharply, and were expected to end in three or four months in autumn. The issue of Skopje’s accession to the alliance will be resolved simultaneously.

According to the source, the United States expedited the talks.
