Coming from there very own people, the real truth is known, they are not related to the Ancient Macedonians. FYROM is a fake nation deluding themselfs.

They are more Bulgarian than the Bulgarians.

5 years for FYROM to partition, most experts agree the country of FYROM will not be around long.

North Macedonia for us. South, East and West for Greece.
Slavic language for us. Greek language for Greeks.
That is the closest to a real compromise.
Most experts have been saying that and been wrong so far.

apparently this would end things and move fyrom right along to nato admission and put fyrom on a much quicker road to the eu. unless everyone is lying the west is waiting for fyrom to insert a geographic qualifier , so whether it is northern or upper or even slavic macedonia this should suffice.

Well Mr Large I would like to see our people get along more than any EU, Nato, etc. I don't think its a good idea for us to join the EU until we are ready. Your country might have to exit it soon and it's sad what has happend to your people. I don't want to see North Macedonia take the same dark road. We must love our neighbors and work together to undo the damage caused to our neighborhood. North Macedonia with the Slavic Language and limited shared history is fine with me and my family.

In order for this work we must bring the pressure down slowly. Once it reaches a safe level gently push people to meet in the middle. It's not going to be easy but nothing in life worth doing is easy.

"In 1992, Bulgaria became the first sovereign nation to recognize the independence of the Republic of Macedonia, regardless of the fact that up until 1943-1944, when the authorities of communist Yugoslavia decided to invent a distinct Macedonian nation, its Slavic population had been considered part of the Bulgarian nation.

In his lecture in Sofia, former Macedonian PM Georgievski did emphasize that in the last few decades children in Macedonian schools have been taught constantly that Bulgaria is an enemy, while he himself believes that the people of Bulgaria and Macedonia are the closest possible historically."

FYROM IS FCUKING JOKE!

Slavomacedonia is alright with me. I don't know about your albanian friends (?). North-south is not a good idea. Ljupko Georgievski is right, no future based on fake roots...

Slavomacedonia would not be ok with Albanians. So North Macedonia is better and more inclusive of the people there.

I never hated or even disliked these people. This name game is a set-up in order to divide us, that's all. Just one question (because you are a macedonian, i am an athenian and you know better). If tomorrow they changed name would you consider them as friends and allies, yes or not? just clear your mind, forget the insults written in topix and answer, are yugoslavs enemies of the macedonians?

I can't speak for all my people. I am not 100% slavic. My family are Vlaci who speak Latin when they are mad mostly. And the rest are from what is now Greece. It's why I like a more general additive. North or something like that which is more inclusive.

No compromise.

Our name is Republic of Macedonia, and that is not negotiable. Our history is precious, it defines who we are, and is not for sale.

A stale mate is better then defeat. Macedonia will ultimately win this battle.

If Greece had any real power they would have stopped us from making our constitutional name Republic of Macedonia. It is too late for that now, not that Greece ever had a chance of telling a free sovereign country what to do in the first place.

Macedonians have an international right to determine who they are, and Greeks are just dreamers if they think they can stop us.

I am from the Republic of Macedonia. I was born a Macedonian. I live as a Macedonian, and I will die as a Macedonian.

Do not be fooled by small talk.

Now get back on your knees my little greeks peasants, and beg me some more to change my name MACEDONIA.
