"I think the time is right to reach a solution on the basis of Nimetz's proposal. It is a sensible proposal. Greece, for the first time in its history, accepts the term 'Macedonia' to be included in the international name of the country. This is very important. People may not know this, but this is it," Ambassador Mallias said.

Athens sees the name "Republic of Northern Macedonia" as a good proposal tabled by UN mediator Matthew Nimetz, Greek Ambassador Alexandros Mallias said.

Mr. Mallias labeled the proposal as "sensible" adding that it was good enough for Greece to make a compromise, Makfax agency said.
