Macedonia se acerca a un acuerdo sobre la disputa de su nombre con Grecia

Graphic News

June 12, 2018 -- Funcionarios de Grecia y Macedonia han dicho que están por alcanzar un esquema de acuerdo para resolver la disputa por el nombre nacional Macedonia, que se ha prolongado durante décadas – pero el compromiso propuesto enfrenta disensión en ambos países.

Greece wants the former Yugoslav republic to change or modify its name to avoid any claim to the territory and ancient heritage of Greece’s region of Macedonia – birthplace of ancient warrior king Alexander the Great.

A resolution of the dispute would see Greece lift its objections to Macedonia’s accession to NATO.

But Greek opponents of the deal – that would likely rename the Balkan republic as “North” or “New” Macedonia – say it would not go far enough.

21 days to go until 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 days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
