Macedonia Press Review – January 9, 2014

Air pollution is within acceptable levels, Austria expects soon solution for the “name” dispute

Skopje

DNEVNIK
There will be no additional measures to protect the population against air pollution in Skopje and in other urban areas, the government has decided, noting that the concentration of pollutants in the air is visibly decreased and is expected to stay within “acceptable” levels. The previous general recommendations however remain. People are advised to avoid driving cars and going out as much as they can. They are also advised to choose carefully the quality of materials they use for heating their homes.

UTRINSKI VESNIK
Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz expects a solution for the “name” dispute between Greece and Macedonia, adding that it should not hamper Macedonia’s European integration. Kurz says that it would be in Greece’s interest to reach a successful ending to this dispute during its six-month presidency with the European Union which started this month. Kutz said this after the meeting he had in Brussels with the European Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fuele and the Foreign Policy Representative Catherine Ashton.
