The UN mediator in name talks between Macedonia and Greece is going to make a trip to the two countries next month, according to news reaching here from Skopje on Wednesday.

The visit of Matthew Nimetz comes after recent statements by high-ranking U.S. and European officials that the name row should be settled as soon as possible.

Nimetz is coming to see if the two parties are ready to undertake a fresh initiative to solve the issue that has poisoned the relations between the two countries for the past 18 years.

Athens has been opposed to its neighbor being called the "Republic of Macedonia," arguing it implies a territorial claim over a Greek northern province also called Macedonia.

Macedonia's NATO membership was blocked by Greece over the name dispute between the two countries in April last year at a NATO summit in Romania.
