Greece, Macedonia 'Have A Deal' On Name Dispute

N. Macedonia... not President refuses to sign renaming treaty with Greece day after announcement

"Accepting the "Macedonian language" and the "Macedonian ethnicity" constitutes a non-acceptable national concession", he said in a video posted on his official Twitter account.

Relations sank with the erection of a huge statue of Alexander the Great in Skopje in 2011.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said that all of Greece's concerns had been addressed with the new name, according to the Associated Press.

Canyon Matka is one of the prettiest spots to visit in Macedonia. The move is part of a plan to resolve longstanding tensions between the country and its neighbor to the south, Greece.

"We got a fair deal..."

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras leaves the Presidential Palace following his meeting with Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos (not pictured) in Athens, Greece, June 12, 2018.

FYR Macedonia and Greece call it truce on the 27 year old ongoing name dispute.

The current prime ministers' attempts to end the dispute have faced dissent in both countries, leading to large protests by opponents of a compromise, threatening to split Greece's governing coalition and provoking a rift between Macedonia's prime minister and president.

David Davis says parliament vote can not reverse Brexit
Philip Lee said a choice between "bad and worse" options was not giving MPs a meaningful vote. Some lawmakers tried to shout him down and accused the government of wanting too much power.

The statements from diplomats trumpeting today's deal reflect the linguistic awkwardness of the issue.

"We are proud that this historic agreement was reached while two progressive governments are running both of the countries", PES president Sergei Stanishev said.

But before that, he said the agreement will be put to parliament for ratification in order not to waste any time and to allow Greece to lift its blockade on Macedonia's potential membership of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the EU.

"We must now make good use of the window of opportunity that has been pushed wide open to accompany and consolidate the winds of peace and cooperation in the entire region".

In 1992 more than a million Greeks joined a rally in the northern city of Thessaloniki, once the most important city in ancient Macedonia, to proclaim "Macedonia is Greek". Macedonia is the birthplace of Alexander the Great. "Greece considers Macedonia a non-negotiable part of its history", explains NPR.

This is the Archaeological Museum of Macedonia, which is in the capital, Skopje.

Matthew Nimetz, a retired USA diplomat, has been the United Nations mediator on the issue since 1994. He told the BBC a year ago that he probably has spent more time thinking about the word "Macedonia" than anyone, including in the country itself.

European Union foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini and commissioner Johannes Hahn issued a joint statement congratulating the two prime ministers "in reaching this historic agreement between their countries, which contributes to the transformation of the entire region of South-East Europe".
