Zaev will rename airport Alexander The Great


Zoran Zaev announced that he will change the name of the Skopje airport to help resolve a decades-long dispute with Greece over the republic's name, he said on Wednesday.

The name of the airport - Skopje Alexander the Great Airport - will be changed. The new name has "not yet been decided", a Macedonian government spokesman said.

Zaev said the north-south Alexander the Great motorway ending at the Greek border will be renamed "Friendship Highway".

"To demonstrate, in practice, that we are committed to finding a solution, I am announcing that we will change the name of the airport and avenues," Zaev told reporters at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
