UN mediator Nimetz: A new era for establishing peace and security in the Balkans

UN mediator for the FYROM name dispute Matthew Nimetz, in a written statement issued by the office of the UN representative, welcomed the ratification of the Prespes Agreement by the Greek parliament on Friday. “I would like to congratulate the parliament and Greece’s government for this visionary step. This historic agreement between two neighbours opens the door to a new relationship between them and announces a new era for the establishment of peace and safety in the Balkans. I am looking forward to the conclusion of the procedure as it is described in the agreement and I reaffirm the UN’s constant commitment to cooperate with both parts.”
