Macedonia to seek NATO accession under provisional name.

By bne IntelliNews December 14, 2011
Macedonia will seek NATO accession under its provisional name "the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia", TV broadcaster Sitel reported, quoting foreign ministry sources. Earlier this month, UN's International Court of Justice found that Greece, by objecting to the admission of Macedonia to NATO, has breached an obligation under the Interim Accord of Sep 13, 1995. According to the Interim Accord, Greece agrees not to object to Macedonia's admission to international or regional organisations of which Greece is a member, provided that Macedonia is referred to with its provisional name.
