Macedonia and Greece PMs Agree on a New Name

The Prime Ministers of Greece and Macedonia met during the EU-Western Balkans summit in Sofia. According to Macedonia’s PM Zoran Zaev, a solution that suits both countries was found during the discussion.

This name, however, was not revealed.

According to, Zaev revealed that he and Tsipras agreed on a solution, but they will have to consult with their cabinets. The PM expressed hopes that the naming dispute will be solved before the next meeting of the European leaders in Brussels in June this year.

The naming dispute with Greece is one of the major obstacles for Macedonia to enter the EU, a goal that Zaev proclaimed yet again during the summit. There were many meetings dedicated to solving the problem in recent months, but the EU-Western Balkans summit in Sofia was expected to be the final and conclusive one.
