Country Information

North Macedonia is a country in the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. It is one of the successor states of the former Yugoslavia, from which it declared independence in 1991. It became a member of the United Nations in 1993, but, as a result of an ongoing dispute with Greece over the use of the name "Macedonia", was admitted under the provisional description the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (sometimes abbreviated as FYROM and FYR Macedonia). From then until February 2019, it was officially the Republic of Macedonia and was commonly known as Macedonia. On February 13, 2019, the country was officially renamed North Macedonia. Wikipedia
