Macedonia naming dispute
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis will meet with North Macedonia's Zoran Zaev on November 14, on the sidelines of the Thessaloniki Summit 2019, a business event organized by the Federation of Industries of Greece (SBE).
Their first meeting was on September 24 in New York, on the sidelines of a UN meeting, as part of Mitsotakis' contacts with leaders from the western Balkans.
The European Parliament has adopted, by a large majority, a resolution to support the opening of negotiations with Northern Macedonia and Albania.
The text expresses disappointment at the failure of last week's summit after France, the Netherlands and Denmark blocked the decision. The lack of a solution is a strategic mistake, the resolution underlines.
The US Senate has voted overwhelmingly to ratify North Macedonia's entry into NATO as the alliance's 30th member.
Senators voted 91-2 on Tuesday to approve North Macedonia's accession to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The no votes came from Republican Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah.
