    [05] According to US Congress Unanimous Decision

    FYROM not "Republic of Macedonia"

    26 Σεπ 2008 09:16:00

    US House of Representatives in 1361 resolution on Durban Revision Conference, unanimously adopted by the Plenum, refers to our neigbouring country as FYROM and not as "Republic of Macedonia. It is a first time that a unanimous decision of the US House of Representatives makes clear reference of the neighbouring countrys internationally recognized name. It should be reminded that the two bodies of US Congress-House of Representatives 356 resolution and the Senates 300 resolution call FYROM to put a halt to its hostile and irredentist campaign against Greece and work constructively to produce a mutually acceptable solution to name issue.
