SKOPJE, Macedonia -- Leaders plan to meet Monday (February 22nd) to co-ordinate their position ahead of a visit by Matthew Nimetz, the UN mediator in the name dispute between Macedonia and Greece. Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, President Gjorge Ivanov, Foreign Minister Antonio Milososki and Deputy Prime Minister Abdilaqim Ademi will attend the meeting. Gruevski said on Sunday that a meeting including representatives of the opposition could be called if Nimetz offers concrete proposals on the name dispute.
