أوروبا: جدول زمني للخلاف مع اليونان على اسم مقدونيا infographic

تاريخ الخلاف مع اليونان على اسم مقدونيا

Graphic News

June 14, 2018 -- For 27 years, Greece and Macedonia have been bedevilled by one of the oddest disputes in international diplomacy – what the smaller, younger and landlocked country of 2.1 million should be called, at home and abroad.

A tentative agreement between their prime ministers could now lead to full normalisation of the two neighbours’ relations, while clearing the main obstacle to realising Macedonia’s dream of becoming part of NATO and the European Union.

Conservative main opposition parties in both countries are against the deal, arguing that it is too generous to the other side. But neither would be able, on its own, to block parliamentary approval of the agreement.

Macedonia’s head of state, conservative-rooted President Gjorge Ivanov, has unequivocally rejected changing the country’s name in its constitution. By law, his signature is necessary for the agreement approved in parliament to be legal, but it is unclear whether he will be able to derail it.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
