American Ambassador to Macedonia Jess Baily said that the Untied States always have and will continue to support Macedonia in reaching a mutually acceptable solution to the name issue with Greece, which blocked our NATO accession.

Baily made the comments after newly appointed Prime Minister Zoran Zaev spoke with the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on ways to resolve the name issue. Baily said that it is good that Macedonia and Greece are talking, but that he will not discuss outcomes of the talks.

According to Baily, the US will support Macedonia in achieving its European Union and NATO accession goals. Baily also said that there needs to be unity in the entire society, including the opposition on the rule of law reform steps that need to be taken.
