Bakoyannis: No new initiatives in sight on name dispute with Macedonia

There are no signs that the UN Secretary General would come up with a fresh initiative on the Macedonia-Greece dispute over the name.

Greek Foreign Minister, Dora Bakoyannis, said this after Tuesday's working dinner with the UN's chief Ban Ki-moon.

"We had a chance to inform the Secretary General and his new team on Greece's proposals", Bakoyannis said, noting that other subjects were touched too.

According to her, Ban Ki-moon accepted PM Costas Karamanlis's invitation to pay a visit to Athens.

In the course of her visit to US, Bakoyannis is due to meet with State Secretary Condoleezza Rice tomorrow.
