Leaders’ meeting ends: Zaev confirms The Republic of Ilinden Macedonia is the new name proposal


The Republic of Ilinden Macedonia is the option considered by the premiers of Macedonia and Greece in Sofia last week as being ‘the most acceptable’, Prime Minister Zoran Zaev confirmed after the leaders’ meeting on Saturday.

He said the name would be for all uses and the language would be Macedonian.

I informed about the last phase of the name dispute negotiations. With full responsibility, vigilance and comittment to the state interests, I informed the President of the state, the Parliament, the leaders of VMRODPMNE and DUI that the governments of Macedonia and Greece are considering an option and a solution that could be acceptable for both sides. The Republic of Ilinden Macedonia is a possible compromise,” said Zaev.

He pointed out that this proposal strengthens the foundation of our country. Ilinden, is our bright future, he added, with this name we strengthen our identity, and the Macedonian Ilinden is a guarantee for multi-ethnic Macedonia.

Zaev stressed that with the possible agreement we would get a final confirmation of the Macedonian language, a guarantee of the identity and international codes.

We will accept a name for all uses, and for internal use it will be implemented in stages, said Zaev and announced a referendum, something that the Greek side accepted.
