Abstract

What was the Macedonia name issue? In this video, I explore how, after 25 years of talks with Greece, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) became the Republic of North Macedonia. Welcome to Independent Thinking. A channel dedicated to international relations, independence disputes, secession and the origins of countries. The Macedonia name issue was widely regarded as one of the more frivolous disputes in modern international politics. However, in truth, it had very serious consequences. For almost 30 years, it disrupted relations between Greece and its northern neighbour; the Republic of Macedonia or the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM). This interrupted the latter's efforts to join NATO and the European Union. In this video I look at the the emergence of the dispute following the collapse of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s. I consider the three main elements of the problem before explaining how the issue was eventually resolved, in June 2018, with the signing of Prespa Agreement. This agreement saw the country change its name to the Republic of North Macedonia.
