To change the name from Macedonia requires Greece that does not want to cause confusion with the Northern Greek region of Macedonia. After a meeting held in late January, the meeting of the Prime Ministers of the two countries in Skopje agreed to rename the capital’s airport and the main highway of the country, bearing the name of Alexander the great.
