WEBPUBLICA – New York – As he was hinting during a couple of weeks process Prime-Minister of Greece Alexis Tsipras delivered a significant political victory by providing a simple majority in Parliament in Athens in full support for Prespa Agreement for accepting the change of name of Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to the Republic (FYROM) of Northern Macedonia.

The change of the name of Macedonia was supported by 153 deputies out of 300 members of Greek Parlament.

In Athens, Greek MPs ratified an agreement on changing the name which was subject of bitter diplomatic war between two countries for almost a three decades.

The deputies thus delivered  Prime Minister  Tsipras a permit to finally end one of the hardest diplomatic disputes in the world.

According to various news agencies reporting from the Greek capital,

Tsipras’party Syriza secured the majority in the vote, by providing the support of several independent deputies.

According to the agreement signed last year, in June 2018, FYROM will not only change her name to Northern Macedonia but will enjoy the support of Greece who committed not to block the country’s entry into NATO and the EU.

United Nations in New York stated it will stand by this process up to the end as they did for the last 27 years. And this is now the end of the game with a rear diplomatic happy end.
