Ministry of Foreign Affairs announcement regarding today’s decision from the government of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to rename Skopje’s airport and the highway linking Skopje and the Greek border

Tuesday, 06 February 2018

We welcome today’s decision from the government of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to rename Skopje’s airport “Skopje International Airport” and the highway linking Skopje and the Greek border “Friendship Highway”.

Today’s decision is a positive step towards reversing what has happened in the past decade and created tensions in the relations between the two countries.

This is an important development in the direction of dealing with irredentism, and we hope that it marks the start of a new chapter in the relations between our two countries and peoples.
