Macedonia and Greece have ended a 27-year-old
dispute by signing a historic agreement that changes the name of the former Yugoslav republic
to the Republic of North Macedonia. It was signed on Sunday at Lake Prespa, the
border that separates both countries. The accord paves the way for Macedonia to
seek membership in the European Union and NATO. However, nationalists from both sides are
bitterly opposed to the name change and the deal must still be ratified in the parliaments
of both nations.
