The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Edgars Rinkēvičs, welcomes the ratification of the historic Prespa Agreement in Skopje and Athens and congratulates the supporting vote of the Hellenic Parliament today.

The Minister notes that the commitment by both parties to taking this significant step is not only a positive turning point in the relations between the two countries but also a prerequisite for North Macedonia’s course towards integration with the EU and NATO, as well as being a vital contribution to the strengthening of stability and cooperation in the Western Balkans.

At the same time, we look forward to the completion of the remaining procedural steps for the new name of the state, “the Republic of North Macedonia”, to officially take effect in the near future.
