Gruevski: Macedonia won't accept any name different from the constitutional one

Republic of Macedonia won't accept a name for international use which is different from the constitutional one.

Government's spokesman Ivica Bocevski confirmed to Makfax that Macedonian PM Nikola Gruevski said this late Friday, while commenting the latest draft-framework of understanding of the UN mediator Matthew Nimetz, he handed over yesterday to the Macedonian and Greek negotiators.

Macedonian PM added that the document contained a number of items, including some more or less problematic, but that it also included some good points.

"There is an item that is definitely unacceptable for us, which says that the Republic of Macedonia is to accept for international use a name different of the constitutional name of the Republic of Macedonia," Gruevski said.
