    Welcome to North Macedonia: parliament votes for name change (20. Oct. 2018)

    The current official name is "The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia" or something like that, which in addition to sounding a bit daft is not accepted by Greece because it sounds too much like 'Macedonia' which is a name they feel they have ownership of, which is why they've blocked the country from entering into the EU and NATO.

    It's a silly dispute to start with, so it's good to hear they're actually going through with this!

    Well, that was all rather interesting, I didn't even know there was a country called Macedonia, well now North Macedonia.

    What a silly argument put forward by Greece to oppose the original name.
