Macedonian parliament agrees to change country’s name

SKOPJE (Reuters) – Macedonia’s parliament passed on Friday an amendment to the constitution to change the country’s name to Republic of North Macedonia, as agreed with Greece to end a decades-long dispute.

Eighty-one deputies in the 120-seat parliament voted in favor. Representatives of the opposition VMRO-DPMNE, who opposed the agreement with Greece, boycotted the vote.
