Today, Macedonia’s Parliament voted in favour of amendments to the country’s constitution to implement the Prespa Agreement. We look forward to the Agreement being ratified by the Greek Parliament. This will end a long-standing dispute between the two countries and open the way for Macedonia to progress towards NATO and EU membership.
Following the historic result, Foreign Secretary said:
The UK strongly welcomes the vote in Macedonia’s Parliament today in favour of implementing the Prespa Agreement. This is an historic moment for Macedonia.
This marks a major step towards resolving the long-standing Name Issue with Greece, and brings the country closer to a more secure, stable and prosperous future at the heart of the Euro-Atlantic community.
Implementation of the Agreement will unlock greater opportunities for Macedonia’s young people and demonstrates what can be achieved with courage, determination and a vision for the future.
