Macedonia: Parliament votes in favour of beginning name change process

The Macedonian parliament voted in favour of beginning the procedure to formally change the country's name to the Republic of North Macedonia on Friday. 80 members of parliament out of 117 supported the idea of changing the name, and thus end the decades' long dispute with Greece and pave the way for Macedonia to join NATO and the EU. The September referendum on the issue was declared invalid... Еще due to a low turnout, though the majority of those who voted supported the idea of the name change. Earlier this year Athens and Skopje signed an agreement on the name change which sparked protests in both countries.
