A new poll finds the majority of citizens believe that negotiations on the name dispute with Greece should be abandoned. A survey commissioned by the daily Dnevnik and published on Tuesday (May 25th) found that 60% of Macedonians believe that their country could join the EU and NATO without changing its name. In addition, 51% said Macedonia should stop seeking compromise with Greece over the long-standing row, compared to 48% who believe the talks should continue. Among ethnic Albanians, 79% say the negotiations must go on. Overall, 62% of respondents say that if a compromise is found, it should be submitted to a referendum. The survey, conducted from May 15th to May 18th, involved 1,080 people.
