The Onus is on FYRoM to compromise - End of Story!

The Eurocrats at European Commission owe it to themselves to have an accredited historian scholar correct the mistakes Mose Apelblat has written in their name.

The European Commission is better than this.

It's not a Greek-Macedonian conflict but Greek SlavoSkopian one.

Because Macedonians have named after Greek names ALL the cities they built or renamed.

As if they knew that, 2500 years later, a bunch of “Macedonian”(that is SlavoSkopian) MALAKES would argue about their doubtless Greekness.

MALAKES !!

"Greece and Macedonia would have to agree on how to share the name."

Greeks agree with that. It implies that NONE should monopolize the name of Macedonia. Therefore, no country, language, ethnicity, or citizenship, should be named Macedonian. Because if a c ountry, language, ethnicity or citizenship is named Macedonian then no other country, language ethnicity or citizenship is allowed to be named Macedonian. Greece made the crucial half step: Anymacedonia.

My country Macedonia will not share it,s name with anyone. In fact there is no other country with the same name to share it with.
So to share my countries name with another country which does not bear the same name as us is just not possible. Now if our southern neighbor changes it,s name into Macedonia then they might have case but in this instance they have not got a leg to stand.
Isto there will always be a country ,nation, language and culture called macedonia and you have no option but to come to terms with it.

The Roman province of Macedonia was officially established in 146 BC, after the Roman general Quintus Caecilius Metellus defeated Andriscus of Macedon, the last Ancient King of Macedon in 148 BC, and after the four client republics ("tetrarchy") established by Rome in the region were dissolved. The province incorporated ancient Macedonia, with the addition of Epirus, Thessaly, and parts of Illyria, Paeonia and Thrace. This created a much larger administrative area, to which the name of 'Macedonia' was still applied.

After the reforms of Diocletian in the late 3rd century, Epirus Vetus was split off, and sometime in the 4th century, the province of Macedonia itself was divided into Macedonia Prima in the south and Macedonia Salutaris in the north. These provinces were all subordinate to the Diocese of Macedonia, one of three dioceses which were included in the praetorian prefecture of Illyricum, organized in 318. When the Prefecture was divided between the Western and Eastern Empires in 379, the Macedonian provinces were included in Eastern Illyricum. With the permanent division of the Empire in 395, Macedonia passed to the East, which would evolve into the Byzantine Empire.
