Greece: agreement on Macedonia

World June 12, 2018 17:03

athens - Athens and Skopje have reached an agreement about the name of Macedonia after decades. That said the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who spoke about a 'good deal' that meets the Greek concerns.

Both countries have been in trouble for years about the name Macedonia. The conflict dates back to 1991, when Macedonia peacefully separated from Yugoslavia and continued as the independent Republic of Macedonia. That fell badly in Greece, which has its own region Macedonia.

Tsipras said that the Greek parliament is still allowed to comment on the agreement. It is still unclear which name Macedonia should get. The intended name change of the country is particularly sensitive.
