Macedonia officially changed its name to Republic of North Macedonia on Tuesday.

The Prespa agreement, reached between Greece and Macedonia in June 2018, was published in the Official Gazette, along with amendments to the constitution which changed the name of the country to North Macedonia, the government said in a press release.

The conditions had been met to implement the constitutional amendments to change the country’s name which parliament adopted on January 11.

Macedonia was internationally known as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) because of a dispute over the name with Greece, whose northern province carries the same name. The dispute was resolved in the so-called Prespa agreement, opening the door for North Macedonia to become a member of NATO and move towards membership in the European Union.
