North Macedonia Puts Itself On The Map, Officially

Workers set up a sign reading 'Republic of North Macedonia' at the Macedonia Greece border near Gevgelija on Feb 13 2019

"And we step into the future as part of the Alliance's family".

"The Republic of Macedonia has been dishonoured and disfigured".

"Thank you for your strong personal commitment to our Alliance".

Earlier on Tuesday, Macedonia raised a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation flag at its main government building, as members of the alliance continued to ratify the country's accession agreement.

It has been a big week for the Balkan country.

Under the deal with Greece, the country's previous official name "The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia" passes into history, and with it the last vestiges of the now-defunct six-republic Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia, which fell apart in a series of bloody wars in the 1990s.

Just last Wednesday, NATO members signed the accession protocol alongside North Macedonia to launch its path to membership.

"We can all be proud that we are living the new era, an era of building a democratic society of equal citizens who aspire to conquer European values", he wrote in a statement on Wednesday.

Workers in the newly renamed North Macedonia have begun replacing road signs to reflect the change in their country's name, following a deal with neighboring Greece to end a almost three decade-long dispute and secure NATO membership.

Macedonian authorities began yesterday removing official signs from government buildings to prepare for the country's new name: North Macedonia.

Athens had blocked its northern neighbor from joining either bloc because it claimed "Macedonia" and the name's historical associations for one of its northern provinces.

The government webpage, seen here, reflects that change.

Skopje will notify the United Nations about the name change in the coming days, when the use of it will start worldwide, according to a foreign ministry spokeswoman.

"May today be the beginning of a long friendship between Greece and North Macedonia", he said in a tweet.
