US Congressmen Urge Macedonia to Stop Nationalistic Propaganda

Skopje/Athens. US congressmen urge Macedonia to stop its nationalistic propaganda, Greek site informs.
This is what has been noted in a draft resolution introduced at the US Congress by Democrat Caroline Maloney. By now the draft resolution has been signed by 77 congressmen from the Republican and Democratic parties.
The resolution reads that Macedonia should stop with the “negative and nationalistic propaganda” and start cooperating with the UN and Greece for finding an acceptable official name for the republic.
The site notes that last month Republican Party congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who is the chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, called on Skopje to accept the proposal of UN Special Envoy on FYROM Matthew Nemitz. In an article in the National Review magazine the congresswoman stresses that Mr. Nemitz’s proposal is the basis for talks on finding an acceptable solution to the name dispute “in favor of both states and the stability on the Balkans”.
