Macedonia hopes it will be invited to join NATO at the upcoming summit of the alliance in May in Chicago.

Greek Prime minister Lukas Papademos has reportedly accepted the invitation by his Macedonian counterpart Gruevski to a meeting.

They will most probably meet in Brussels on the margins of EU meetings in early March.

Nimetz is travelling to Athens where he will meet Greek government officials to hear their stance on the name issue.

He said Macedonia has expressed a "sincere desire to resolve the issue and have a constructive negotiation with its southern neighbor".

"I will convey the message to the Greek government," Nimetz said.
