The treaty on the renaming of the former Yugoslavian republic Macedonia was signed in Greek Prespes. The relevant document was signed by the Foreign Ministers of Greece and Macedonia, as Reuters reports.

Therefore, Macedonia was renamed to the Republic of North Macedonia.

“The agreement still requires the approval of both parliaments and a referendum in Macedonia. That approval is far from assured, as it faces stiff opposition from the Greek public, and Macedonia’s president has vowed to block the deal,” the news agency reports.

The argument between Greece and Macedonia concerning the name lasted for 27 years. Earlier, the governments of Greece and Macedonia agreed on the renaming, but it was accepted with a serious discontent.

Greek Parliament held voting for the censure vote of Tsipras’s Government, but it was not supported.
