“MAKEDONIJA for the MAKEDONCI”

While expressing their readiness for a compromise, Macedonian officials have made it clear that they would not seek a solution at any cost.

Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski voiced scepticism about the prospects of a deal being reached within the next few days.

He also warned that a Greek veto would "trigger strong frustrations amongst the Macedonian citizens" and send the negotiations into such a "profound crisis" that his country could decide to pull out of the process.

The last opportunity the two countries have for resolving their dispute before the NATO summit will be the EU foreign ministers' two-day informal meeting, opening in Brdo, Slovenia, on Friday.

Citing an unnamed NATO diplomat, Reuters reported on Wednesday that a fallback option has been discussed. It would give Skopje a conditional invitation to join the Pact, but delay ratification until a settlement is reached.

Latest proposal from Nimetz
- Republic of Macedonia (for Home use)
- Republic of Macedonia Skopje (in English) for international use.
- Macedonia as a name can not be used by any country.
- both countries can use the term 'Macedonian', no country has exclusive right over the term.
In Nimetz's letter, continues to say:
- both countries must be good neighbors
- Greece must support Macedonia in its EU, NATO integration
- examine the decisions of renaming Airports

Fvck you Scops Nimetz has woken up to your lies, the game is over.

Greek Veto, Scopja pull out and Albanian tack over, they will give some land to Greece and Bulgaria for good neighbourly relations and we will support thier NATO and EU aspirations.

All done, no more negotiations. No Macedonian will accept this unjustice done by the International community. No more negotiation and no more bulshit. We pull out, f*ck NATO, f*ck the Orthodox Turks in Greece, we have existed for 1000's of years and will remain Macedonians and Repiblic of Macedonia is the only name for us. We dont need NATO, let anyone try and take one step in our country and you will see another Palestine on the Balkans!!!

In Skopja must read and study the world history. Must know about Alexander the Great and his nation. His language was ancient Greek, he was born and rase in Greece and he was the leader of Greeks against the Persians. You are not Macedonians, the half of you are Albanians and the other half Slavs . Macedonians are Greeks. They speak Greek. Do you know the capital of Macedonia? Where is it? Learn and answer!

Have a look at yourself in the mirror my friend, do you see anything Aincent Macedonian in you? You cusins are from Africa and Egypt and you infested the Agean Part of Macedonia from Anatolia after 1912. You should read History and dont be ashamed to admit that you are a Orthodox Turk. You will never be Macedonian as we Macedonins lived on that land for much longer than you did. Talking about history, according to your historians the Macedonians were barbarinas and spoke totaly different language to Aincent Greeks.

FIRST OF ALL, YOUR OFFICIAL NAME UNDER THE U.N. RESOLUTION IS FYROM...... SECONDLY, THE COUNTRIES YOU CLAIM HAVE RECOGNISED YOU AS "ROM" IS ONLY ON BILATERAL ISSUES, NOT ON AN INTERNATIONAL LEVEL.....THIRDLY, MACEDONIA'S HELLENIC HISTORY (AND LEGACY) IS MORE THAN 3,000 YEARS OLD!

Well, Macedonia could publicly and bindingly renounce any territorial claims over any territory under Greek rule, and that should be enough to satisfy Greek concerns. Besides if they're both in NATO and EU, that would preclude any conflict
