If you are travelling to a country you should pay respect to the culture:
Why don´t you try to find your own answers but obviously repeat the unidimensional state of mind which unfortunately is present in your country?
This is damaging your country's and your people's image in the whole world.
You should question all things you hear at greek schools, read in greek books or watch on greek television.
-> No matter how often one repeats a lie it never becomes true, never forget that.
The name of my country is Republic Of Macedonia and will be Republic Of Macedonia!
The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was an original Member of the United Nations, the Charter having been signed on its behalf on 26 June 1945 and ratified 19 October 1945, until its dissolution following the establishment and subsequent admission as new Members of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Republic of Croatia, the Republic of Slovenia, The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
By resolutionA/RES/47/225 of 8 April 1993, the General Assembly decided to admit as a Member of the United Nations the State being provisionally referred to for all purposes within the United Nations as "The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia" pending settlement of the difference that had arisen over its name.
AN ANSWER TO THE FYROMians:
Respect global history. Respect other nations' history. Try to make your own history.
You are not Macedonians. Do not be ridiculous! You are Slavs or Bulgarians, that came to the area of Greek Macedonia only after 600 A.D.
Your language is a slavic one. It is almost the same as bulgarian language. You DO NOT speak a "macedonian" language. For God's shake.
Your multinational country is full of other nations. Your people make only 55% of the population. Albanians have higher birthrate than you (the real number of them is almost 600.000), so in a couple of decades, Albanians will be the majority of FYROM. The destruction of your small multinational country is upon you. Only Greece can help you, and you managed to convert your best friend into your worst enemy... You must be intelligent enough, to do such a thing.
Stop this shit about Macedonia... Your country is Vardarska. Or Paionia (if you read real global history, you will see that your country is almost the ancient (non greek) kingdom of Paionia, a country that the Philip the II, the GREEK, incorporated to the GREEK Kingdom of Macedonia.
NOT ALL the places that Philip or Alexander the Great conquered, are Macedonia! Asia Minor is not Macedonia. Thessaly is not Macedonia, Pakistan is not Macedonia. SO, FYROM (the ancient PAIONIA) is NOT Macedonia.
The real ancient GREEK Kingdom of Macedonia is almost the same as the present day greek prefecture of Macedonia. Only a small part of your country (the place of greek city of Monastiri or Bitola as you call it) belongs to the ancient greek Kingdom of Macedonia.
Oh, by the way... Your country's name is FYROM for the time being. It used to be VARDARSKA, so you may use this name again. You may even call your country Paionia. But whatever you may say or do, your country IS NOT Macedonia. You are not Macedonians.
Macedonia has been GREEK for 4.000 years. Macedonians have been GREEKS for 4.000 years. You do not like it? Who cares? :-)
Remember... Albanians are coming... :-) :-) :-)
