EU presidency holder Hungary is ready to get actively involved in the name dispute between Macedonia and Greece if asked, Hungarian Ambassador to Skopje Ferenc Kekesi told a parliamentary panel on Tuesday (January 11th). While presenting Hungary’s programme and priorities during its six-month presidency of the bloc, Kekesi vowed that Budapest will support Macedonia’s efforts to join the EU, and urged Skopje to continue implementing reforms in the public administration and judiciary. Deputy Prime Minister Vasko Naumovski said he expects 2011 to be crucial for the integration of Macedonia and the Western Balkans. He reaffirmed his country’s willingness to find a mutually acceptable solution to the name row with Greece.
