Greece ratifies Macedonia name-change agreement
2019-01-25 17:40:37

Greek MPs have voted narrowly to back a historic agreement with Macedonia, bringing to an end a 27-year dispute over its northern neighbour's name, the BBC reports. 

The parliament in Athens agreed by 153 votes to 146 to approve the name Republic of North Macedonia, despite widespread opposition from the public.

Thousands demonstrated outside parliament on Thursday night.

Greeks have rejected Macedonia's name since its independence in 1991, as they have a region of the same name.
