Premier Nikola Gruevski and Foreign Minister Nikola Poposki late on Saturday in New York met with UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, MIA's correspondent reported.

Minister Poposki said that during the talks Ban Ki-moon was informed on Macedonian Government's priorities in the coming period, its efforts made to implement reforms, while also discussing the name issue.

"We have informed the UN chief on our commitment to the process being held under UN auspices and the dialogue that we want to intensify at every level surrounding the dispute imposed by our southern neighbour (Greece) over the constitutional name of the Republic of Macedonia. We've extended gratitude to the Secretary General on his willingness to launch initiatives and for the report prepared by the UN Independent Expert on Minority Issues, Gay McDougall that referred to the position of the Macedonian national minority in Greece," Poposki stated after the meeting.

He added that UN's Ban Ki-moon was also briefed on Government's dedication to the process of EU and NATO integration.

"We have voiced our assurance and commitment that there are chances to tackle remaining obstacles within our priorities focused on joining NATO and EU and that we will be able to dedicate ourselves to a brighter future where additional constructive relations will be developed with all of our neighbours, including our southern neighbour," the FM noted.
