FM Lambrinidis to tour Balkan capitals

Bilateral cooperation, the European prospects of the Balkans and the promotion of the Agenda 2014 for the European accession of the western Balkan states, will be the focus visits by Foreign Minister Stavros Lambrinidis in early September, as he will visit Zagreb, Belgrade and Pristina.
As foreign ministry spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras stated, an itinerary has not been completed as yet.
Asked about a visit to the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (fYRoM) as well, he replied that there is nothing relevant in the foreign minister's schedule.
Concerning recent statements by the neighbouring country's prime minister that he would desire a meeting with the Greek premier in New York City, Delavekouras reminded that Athens and the Greek prime minister have contributed decisively to an improvement of the climate between the two countries, but stressed that a corresponding attitude is required from the other side as well.
"The Greek prime minister is always available to meet his fYRoM counterpart, as he has done and shall continue to do so, but it must be understood that a corresponding attitude from our neighbour is also required," Delavekouras said.
