Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev on Saturday called on Greece to end their nations’ decades-long dispute by ratifying the deal to rename his country “The Republic of North Macedonia”. Macedonian lawmakers voted through the agreement late on Friday and it now needs backing from the Greek parliament to come into effect. But I am convinced that the Greek parliament will also find the strength to make the decision,” Zaev told a press conference in Skopje. “Within 10 days… if we see everything is in order, we will vote,” Tsipras said on Friday evening. Zaev said he was “convinced that Greek lawmakers will recognise the historical significance of the agreement”.
