Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras gave a televised address last night following a further discussion with his FYROM counterpart Zoran Zaev and revealed the name change, which he revealed to be the ‘Republic of North Macedonia’. According to Reuters, Tsipras said: "The name change will be implemented not only the country’s international relations but also domestically,"
The main opposition party has already criticised the announcement. Despite the agreement there is a long way to go in terms a final agreement. The vast majority of Greeks remain fiercely opposed to any use of the word ‘Macedonia’ in any name change. The name change will have to pass through the Hellenic Parliament.
