    The meeting of the leaders of the four biggest political parties in FYROM held Sunday in the presence of the countrys President Branko Crvenkovski determined the countrys stance on the proposals US envoy Matthew Nimetz submitted a few days ago. Upon exiting the meeting, FYROMs Foreign Minister Antonio Milososki said: "The countrys stance was determined and all political parties have given their backing. Nimetz will be briefed on it in the forthcoming meeting. FYROM will continue taking part in the negotiations. I cannot elaborate on that, because the deal struck dictates that the positions should be revealed to the US envoy himself. In any case, I believe we have strong arguments, solid positions, as well as arguments that can breathe a new air into the process."

    Keeping a low profile, Athens is getting ready for all probabilities. Greece is after a decent and realistic solution, underlined Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis while flying to Morocco. In the meantime, Foreign Ministry circles said that FYROMs decision was expected.

    In his interview with the Sunday paper Kathimerini tis Kyriaksi, US envoy Matthew Nimetz claimed he will announce the beginning of the new round of talks as soon as the two sides submit their answers on the names proposed.

    The Greek side keeps reiterating that unless a mutually acceptable solution is found, it will block the Balkan country from NATO membership.
