Greece supports the need to adopt one of the names proposed by UN envoy Matthew Nimetz, said Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias after a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Although the name issue was not raised in their meeting, the Greek FM said it was discussed during his meeting earlier with Wess Mitchell, Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasian Affairs.

“We obviously support the need to adopt one of the names proposed by Nimetz and to proceed towards the implementation of a strategic plan of friendly collaboration in the future with this country under its new name. Nobody is pressuring us because Greece takes initiative in actions,” Kotzias added.
