    [04] Greece - FYROM - PM - FM

    20/08/2001 00:08:06

    Greek Foreign Minister George Papandreou met with Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) Prime Minister Ljubco Georgievski on Saturday evening at a resort in Crete for talks focusing on the latest developments in the neighbouring country.

    Georgievski, who is on holiday in Greece, reportedly requested economic aid from Greece during the 45-minute meeting, sources said.

    Earlier in the day, Papandreou called recent developments in FYROM positive following the conclusion of a political agreement between the Skopje government and the two main ethnic Albanian parties.

    ?I believe that conditions today in FYROM are, of course, better, although without having overcome the dangers, but there is a new dynamic,? Papandreou said.

    He also aired a hope that ?ethnic differences in FYROM will soon be resolved based on the recently signed agreement, in order along with everything else for us to derive a lasting resolution to the name issue.?
