Greece, Macedonia to sign name change accord June 17: Greek ministry


Greece and Macedonia will sign an accord on Sunday to change the name of the former Yugoslav republic, the Greek government’s press ministry said on Friday as the governments of both countries faced mounting opposition at home over the deal, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

The accord would be signed in the Prespes region, a lake district which borders Greece, Macedonia and Albania by the two countries’ foreign ministers, the ministry said in a statement to media.

 

It gave no more precise location or time for the signing.

 

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his counterpart Zoran Zaev, who will also be in attendance, have agreed the country will officially be called the “Republic of Northern Macedonia”. It is currently known formally at the United Nations under the interim name “Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”.
