Mexico changes her thesis as regards the FYROM name issue

Foreign Undersecretary of Mexico Ambassador Juan Manuel Gómez Robledo met with the Deputy Foreign Minister of Greece Dr. Yannis Valinakis in the framework of the 63rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

They reviewed the bilateral agenda and, in this context, they underlined the importance of the 70th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Greece and Mexico, which will take place on August 12, 2009. Both sides recognized that this milestone constitutes an excellent opportunity to further strengthen the relations of the two countries.

Undersecretary Gómez Robledo thanked Greece for its support for the candidacy of Mexico for a non-permanent seat on the Security Council for the period 2009-2010, and reiterated that the participation of Mexico in the Security Council will be aimed at promoting peaceful settlement of disputes; peace and stability; and upholding the principles enshrined in the United Nations Charter.

Deputy Foreign Minister Valinakis briefed Undersecretary Gómez Robledo on developments regarding the name issue of the State provisionally referred to as the “Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”. In this regard, Undersecretary Gómez Robledo underlined that the Government of Mexico fully supports the United Nations efforts to find a mutually acceptable solution on the subject. He also assured that, pending settlement of the difference that has arisen over the name of that State, Mexico provisionally refers to that State as the “Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”, in conformity with the relevant Security Council Resolutions 817/93 and 845/93, for all international and bilateral purposes.

Finally, Deputy Minister Valinakis and Undersecretary Gómez Robledo emphasized the readiness of both Governments to further promote trade and investment opportunities, taking full advantage of the Free Trade Agreement between the European Union and Mexico



  1. The best Joke

    Foreign Ministry spokesman Petar Culev informs that the Permanent Mission of Mexico to UN sent a note to the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Macedonia to the world organisation, presenting its compliments for Macedonia's decision to support the candidature of Mexico for a non-permanent member in the UN Security Council.

    In the note, spokesman Culev notes, it is evident that Mexico uses the constitutional name of the Republic of Macedonia, not the reference FYROM. However, MoFA is expecting confirmation for the credibility of the information conveyed on Friday by the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs in relation to Mexico's position regarding the use of our constitutional name.

    - The Permanent Mission of Mexico has the honor to convey the deep appreciation of the Government of Mexico to the Government of the Republic of Macedonia for the valuable support it will render to the above mentioned candidature. This support constitutes a very important testimony that confirms the excellent relations existing between our two countries, reads the Note No. 61/21 dated Oct. 15 sent by Mexico's UN Permanent Mission to the Macedonian Permanent Mission to the Organisation. ba/fd/13:58

  2. Couple remarks as about your post.

    First of all you don’t given the source. Is it the FYROM Ministry Foreign Affairs?

    If is it positive why then in her web site doesn’t mention anything as about this as the Greek Ministry Foreign Affairs do ?

    Second thing is that the FYROM mission in the United Nation mention with the temporary name The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.So there is not any kind of mission with the name that you post it.

    So your post or your source that transmit the specific news is......lying.
    Mexico(and soon many other countries)CHANGED the recognition to FYROM.

  3. You greeks are out of your mind, we are MACEDONIANS, You were once defeated by our king Alexander the Great you are close to another, now diplomatic defeat. Remember that. MACEDONIA TO MACEDONIANS.

  4. nenad the kernel of the problem is that FYROM´s policy has long been based on old agendas, eventually the oldest issue on the national priorities of the states in the region, namely irredentism and great idea aspirations.

    You like or not your nation created with the birth of your State, your nation has slavic culture and has nothing to do with a ancinet Greek tribe that lived 2000 years ago.
